Do they sell cake flour at WalMart/Kroger? I have caught myself looking for it at both places and did not see it....Can I somehow make my own cake flour or just subsitute all purpose flour for cake flour? Hope all that made sense! TIA
They do sell cake flour at Walmart...just bought some yesterday! It's in the baking aisle where the flour area is. I don't know about making your own...that would be interesting.
Yep! My Walmart carries it on the top shelf. It's called Soft something or other. But you know, I have just decided I hate all recipes with cake flour in it. If it calls for cake flour, I just put all purpose in instead.
and everything bakes up right, cylstrial? I just didn't know if it would mess the cake up
You can make your own cake flour by removing 2 Tbsp. of flour and substituting it with cornstarch. I like to so half and half of the cake flour and the all purpose in my recipies so it's a little more stable.
If I remember correctly, the cake flour brand is Soft As Silk. It comes in a box the size of a cereal box and has a cake on the front. My understanding is that cake flour is made from winter wheat as opposed to summer wheat. Apparently winter wheat is softer and produces a finer grain for a more delicate cake. I had never heard of the cornstarch replacement. Regular flour will always be OK. However, if you have a truly delicate cake or very simple item like a madeline, cake flour might be in order. If you are having trouble with a certain recipe it might be worth trying.
