In short yes. In long reduce the AP flour weight by 14% and replace that amount it with cake flour so 20oz of AP flour 4oz cake flour, sift very well.

 I am purchasing all pastry flour tomorrow morning. I wasn't going to add any APF to make my own pastry flour.


But I do have some cake flour on hand. I'm new to using all pastry flour, so it will be trial & error. do you think i should add some cake flour OR APF, as so it's a blend of flours? thanx!
