Can't seem to find cake flour! Help!

I must be going crazy, but I can't seem to find stores that carry cake flour anymore. Pastry flour, bread flour, unbleached all-purpose, all those I can find easily. Anyone know where I can find some?

I found Swan's Down at a couple of places, but it's not really economical as they only seem to come in 2 lb. boxes.

If someone knows if King Arthur puts out a cake flour and where to find it, please let me know. Thanks!

  1. Surfas in Culver City. They do not have King Arthur Queen Guinevere Cake Flour but they repackage a very good one and have it in the refrigerated case.

    and you can buy the Guinevere flour from the king arthur site.

    1. Hi,

      I was able to buy cake flour at my local Ralph's grocery store, Swan's Down brand, in a red box.

      1. If you have a Sprouts Farmer's Market in your area, they sell it in the bulk section. Otherwise, you could make it on your own. Check the Food Network website or Martha It's supposed to be really three ingredients at the most. Good luck!

          Thanks. I'll try to see if there's one nearby. Do you know what the price per pound is?

            Sorry, I've just seen it...have never purchased it and can't remember the price I saw, either.

          1. I don't think that I've ever seen a grocery store not carry it. I believe that even Target may carry it.
