  • You can probably get away with it, but sift it. Cake flower is well sifted.

  • Regular all-purpose flour has way too high a gluten content. The cake won't be light and moist.

  • Cake flour can be bought at most grocery stores right along with regular flour.

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    1 1/2 cups butter
    3 cups white sugar 6 eggs
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Directions
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C) grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan.
    In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar gradually and beat until fluffy.
    Add eggs two at a time, beating well with each addition. Add the flour all at once and mix in. Add vanilla.
    Pour into a 10 inch tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees F (160 degrees C) for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Check for doneness at 1 hour. A toothpick inserted into center of cake will come out clean.



    sounds good right?

  • Use one cup sifted cake flour can be substituted with 3/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Do you have a fine mesh wire strainer? Use that as a sifter. If you don't, then stir the flour with a fork, that will lighten it some. You can buy cake flour in the grocery store, either near the flour or cake mixes. Some area don't have it though, just depends on where you live. The recipe sounds good.
