I found this recipe that also calls for cupcake flour. I am as "confuddled"  as you lot.

 

recipe adapted from Back in the Day Bakery

I plan on making them with cake flour.  Will let you know.

Malson, that recipe is calling for 1 3/4 cup OF cake flour, not cupcake flour. icon_smile.gif

This what I found when I googled it.  Leave it to GOOGLE to find an answer.

(1 cup AP flour - 2 Tablespoons AP flour + 2 Tablespoons corn starch = 1 cup cake flour) Be sure to sift the flour to distribute the corn starch well before using it in your cake batter. The primary difference between cake flour and all-purpose (AP) flour is the protein content (which becomes gluten)

Now I havent seen the book. So I dont know if it said, 2/3 cup cupcake flour. In that sense I had NO idea they made a special flour for cupcakes... Hope this helps! Happy baking.

ROTFLMBO!!!! That would be awesome if that was it. 

I've tried too many times to completely give up.
