I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for a good cake flour. I've been using Softasilk from Pillsbury but just wanted to see if there was something better out there.
I never knew Pillsbury had a cake flour. I have always used Swans Down and really love it.
I also use Swans Down and love it.
I've used the Pillsbury a few times but just haven't gotten great results. I figured maybe trying a different cake flour might make a difference. I'm going to see if my local supermarket carries Swans Down. Thanks so much!!
Swans Down is good but I prefer King Arthur Cake Flour when I can find it.
are you still currently buying the softasilk??? my elderly neighbor loved it and apparently cant find it anywhere and she is just heartbroken :( please get back to me asap
Softasilk is available at HyVee grocery stores in the midwest. Comes in a 2 lb. box.
You can make your own cake flour. This makes enough to do 3-4 cakes or about 8 doz cupcakes
7 c all purpose flour
1c corn starch
Sift the flour and corn starch together a total of 7 times, mixing well with a wire whisk after each sift.
Store in an air tight container.
Voila! Cake flour :)
King Arthur is the only flour I use. AP/Cake/Bread... I have found through trail and error that King Arthur is the very best.
Remember that cake flour might have to be sifted BEFORE measuring. Check the label or search online for FAQ from the mill.
