Re: cake flour in Deutsch??

I haven't seen this specifically in Switzerland - but please correct me, if I'm wrong.

I did find this, however:

Ingredients for Cake Flour:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (which is "Weissmehl" in German)
1/4 cup cornstarch (which is "Maisstärke" in German or "Maizena" - brand)

Directions:
To make two cups of cake flour combine 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour with 1/4 cup cornstarch; proceed with your recipe.

Go to Germany and get a bag of type 405 flour - it's a pastry flour, meaning low gluten - and it should do the job.

I've never tried the cornstarch trick, but if you go that route, choose a flour that has the lowest amount of protein (gluten) on the label since the gluten is the most important factor.
