hi its me again..........(same cake different question)
i wanted to make a raspberry filling and the receipe calls for cornstarch, of course the one thing i forgot to get!!!!
is there any other subsitution for it. im guessing its used to thicken the mixture.
thanks in advance!
Quick Google search turned up the following:
From Food Network - Substitution: CORNSTARCH 1 Tbsp = 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour OR 2 tsp arrowroot
From CD Kitchen - Cornstarch Substitute
For 1 tablespoon cornstarch, substitute 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour;
1 tablespoon potato flour or rice flour;
4 teaspoons quick-cooking tapioca; OR 2 teaspoons arrowroot.
You can use flour in place of the corn starch.
wow i should have thought of checking foodnetwork.
but thank you!
i was thinking flour but didnt know if it would be too much.
i dont have or know what arrow root is.
i guess ill try the flour.
have a nice evening.
You're very welcome. Don't know how we ever got along without the internet...
I've heard of arrowroot to thicken, but have never seen any around.
Surprisingly, I have both potato and rice flour in my pantry. Potato starch for when I make marshmallows, and rice flour to make my shortbread.
