Cake Flour

I like to use the ingredients that a recipe actually calls for (novel idea, right?) but sometimes to buy those ingredients at the store makes a recipe cost-prohibitive. Enter cake flour. Regardless of the fact that I didn’t use to know that cake flour even existed, I didn’t want to spend the money to buy yet another specialty flour. How to solve the problem? Make it myself! And with regular pantry staples to boot. Win.
