Swiss roll / roll cake is loved by all age groups equally. Me too are a big fan of less sweet creamy chocolate swiss rolls and i often go for a store bought only. I have been buying these chocolate roll cakes from grocery as i am worried of above said problems. But now i started making this lovely yummy treat at home as i knew that they are just as convenient.

CAKE FLOUR RECIPE
You can substitute the store bought cake flour with this simple two ingredients.
- Take one leveled cup (210 ml) of All purpose flour. From this, remove two tablespoons of all purpose flour. And then add two tablespoons of cornflour / cornstarch back in instead of the removed All purpose flour. So we get one cup of CAKE FLOUR.
one cup of cake flour = one cup of All purpose flour - two tablespoons of All purpose flour + 2 tablespoons of cornflour.
- Then sift them together to distribute the cornflour well before using in into the cake batter.
- Cornstarch / cornflour will inhibit the formation of gluten when added to all purpose flour. This gives the structure and sponginess to your cake.
