One question that I get asked all the time is this. Is there a way to make cake flour from all-purpose flour? If there is, then how is usually it done and is definitely it costly?
The great news is that it’s not expensive to make cake flour from all-purpose flour, and the even great news is that it’s really easy to help to make it.
But one thing before I go on is to let you know that if you are a beginner here, it’s crucial to find out the differences that wedding cake flour can produce to your cupcakes. Without knowing this difference, I don’t recommend you learn how to make dessert flour from all-purpose flour because you won’t even know why you’re doing it.
So, allow me to take you through the proper stages of turning all-purpose flour to pastry flour.
Introduction to Wedding cake Flour
All flour that are used for baking are made from wheat flour primarily, and wheat flour is made from two main sources of wheat, namely high-gluten hard wheat and low-gluten soft wheat.
And the proportion of those two primary sources of wheat will vary to make cake flour, bread flour, all-purpose flour and more.
Dessert flour has a higher content of low-gluten soft wheat than all-purpose flour and bread flour, so using that for your cookies will result in softer cakes that are more tender in texture.
Using Cake Flour in Cupcakes
It isn’t a must to use cake flour in cupcakes, and We always test wedding cake flour in all recipes against all-purpose flour.
If the substitution of cake flour results in a more desirable texture, after that I’ll make that change. Else, I’ll stick to all-purpose flour.
You should do the same.
Test out your quality recipes using dessert flour in your cupcake dishes, and only adapt the change if the desired texture is achieved.
How to Help to make Pastry Flour from All Purpose Flour
This is what you’ve been waiting for is not it? I’m going to reveal it all to you here.
To help to make pastry flour from all-purpose flour, you’ll need an additional ingredient, and that’s corn flour.
And here’s a list of what you want:
– All Purpose Flour
– Corn Flour
– Flour Sifter
– A measuring tablespoon (tbsp)
– A measuring cup
– A flour sifter
1) Measure 5 cups of all-purpose flour, and from there, remove 10 tbsp of it.
2) Add 10 tbsp of hammer toe flour to the all-purpose flour.
3) Mix it thoroughly by sifting it 5 to 6 times.
4) Store it aside for later use
To produce cake flour from all-purpose flour using the above recipe, make sure your mugs and tbsp of both all-purpose flour and corn flour are level, meaning they aren’t in heaps and bulge up like a mountain.
Also, you might like to mix the flour mixture first after step 2 to get an even more actually mix before step 3.
And that’s what you do to help to make wedding cake flour from all-purpose flour. Simple isn’t it?
