🎂 What is Cake Flour
Cake flour is different from all-purpose flour as it has a much lower protein level. Cakes made with cake flour will have a finer, more tender crumb than those made with all-purpose flour. That being said, in most cases, it is possible to substitute cake flour with all-purpose flour unless the cake is extremely tender (ex. angel food cake).
💭 Cake Flour Substitute
To use all purpose flour for this cookie recipe measure out 1 cup of all purpose flour, remove 2 tablespoons of the all purpose flour and replace it with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Whisk together before using.
🥜 Nut Allergy Warning
💭 Recipe Tip
To make oatmeal powder, add rolled oats to a blender and blend for about 15 seconds until you have a fine, powdery flour.
