What do you subsitute for cake flour?

Question? My recipe calls for cake flour, but I don't have any of that...what can I do?

Answer: Sometimes when baking your recipe might call for 1 cup of cake flour. While most people might not have cake flour on hand, you are able to a substitute 7/8 cup of all-purpose flour in your recipe. Cake flour is a very similar ingredient to all purpose flour, with the main difference being that cake flour will have less gluten.

If someone in your family prefers to eat with less gluten in their diet, feel free to substitute the other way, with 1 cup of cake flour for every 7/8 of a cup of all purpose flour that your recipe might call for.
