    1. Yes, it can. “To substitute cake flour for all-purpose flour use 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons cake flour for every cup of all-purpose flour. Make your own – one cup sifted cake flour (100 grams) can be substituted with 3/4 cup (85 grams) sifted bleached all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons (15 grams) cornstarch.”

    This was just what I was looking for. Yummy and surprisingly moist! Thanks for this recipe!

    Cake was good – made it with soured whipping cream as that is what I had. I have a hot oven and cooked it for 75 min before checking. I should have checked it earlier – so a tad over cooked. But tasty! I would make this cake again, but not with the icing in the recipe. So the four stars is due to the icing. The corn syrup is strong and makes it just too sweet. I would make the icing with peanut butter and butter and icing sugar and cream instead – so more of a thin icing than a glaze. Or even without the corn syrup….and I like corn syrup!
    Thanks – will look for other recipes by you.
