I once substituted spelt flour for regular flour in one of my sponge cakes - it didn't work - it was supposed to be a very airy and fluffy cake but because of the substitution it became a dense and hard cake.  Depending on the recipe flour substitutions don't always work unfortunately.  You have to get a recipe which specifically mentions the different use of flours...

Think about it this way: Cake flour is 27x finer then regular all-purpose flour. It's an interesting fact, really, but it helps me out a lot.

Swsha - although I don't know of any specific recipes to substitute for cake flour I do know of a really good gluten free blog that could get you going in the right direction:
http://myglutenfreecookbook.blogspot.com/

She also has a ton of gluten free blogs in her blogroll.  Check it out, maybe you can find your answer there!

I can usually be found in the kitchen, everything else can be found here: http://tablebread.blogspot.com

I am wondering if one can substitute spelt flour for cake flour in baking cakes.  I know that cake flour has less gluttons than all-purpose and spelt does too, so I was wondering if it would react the same.  If not, is there a way to compensate and still use it?

I have a family member who can eat spelt but not regular wheat and many other wheat flours.
