Keep in mind that this recipe specifically calls for Cake flour. Cake flour as the name suggests is great for making cakes and other baked goods as it yields a tender result. The reason why cake flour results to such tender crumb in cakes is because of a low protein content in it compared to other flours like all purpose flour. The lower the protein content in flours, the less gluten it forms in cake batters which result to such great texture. Keep in mind that cake flour is usually bleached and more processed compared to other flours. You can consume cake flour in moderation, and it is safe to do so.If you don't have buttermilk handy, you can always make it at home using whole milk and vinegar. To 1 cup of whole milk add a tablespoon of vinegar and Wait for five minutes until the milk reacts and curdles resulting to buttermilk.
