as far as I know and have done a few times, since I was horrible at scratch baking and couldn't figure out what I've done wrong, you can substitute 1 cup of all purpose flour minus 2 tablespoons (1c 2tbsp) for each cup of cake flour.

post #3 of 6 if the recipe calls for 6 3/4 cups cake flour I need to take out about 12 tablespoons of all purpose flour...does that sound right?

well i use presto cake flour wich is self rising, when i run out I use the instructions on the pillsbury APF.

"For every one cup of flour add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt", then I take away 2 tbs of the mixture like smallville said. it works for me! HTH

For 6 cups take off 12 tablespoons, yes.

Then for the 3/4 cup, you need to take off one tablespoon and a half.

= 13.5 tablespoons

BUT! I think you have to replace them with cornstarch!
