How to make cake flour? All the years I have been baking, I never knew there was a conversion to turning all purpose flour into cake flour!

I went to make a recipe the other day and it called for cake flour. I said, oh darn, I don't have any cake flour in the house. I went to my computer and "Googled it"

All purpose Flour into Cake Flour is 2 cups of all purpose flour - take two level tablespoons of flour out of it. Add two level tablespoons of cornstarch.

That's it! How easy is that?

I have been buying cake flour all these years or just not making recipes because they call for cake flour. Too easy!
