Cornstarch has twice the “thickening power” of flour. If a recipe calls for 1/4 cup of flour, use just 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Cornstarch thickens with a satiny smoothness and glossy appearance. Cornstarch does not have a taste.
Substitutions: If a recipe calls for this much flour substitute (with this much cornstarch).
1 1/2 tablespoon (1 ½ teaspoons)
2 tablespoons (1 tablespoon)
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 tablespoons)
1/4 cup (2 tablespoons)
½ cup (¼ cup)
