Recipe For Cake Flour Cupcakes

Mini-Driver Mar 11, 2005 10:17 AM

After buying 10 cookbooks in the last month on CUPCAKES, I can't find one recipe that calls for cake flour instead of all purpose flour. Is there a reason you don't use cake flour in Cupcakes? Does anyone out there have a recipe for Cupcakes using cake flour? Much appreciated if you do.

    no there's no reason.

    take a cake recipe, make it in a cupcake pan.

        The latest issue of Cook's Country also has a cupcake recipe that calls for cake flour. It looks like a really good, basic recipe.
