Q: My recipe for lemon cake calls for use of 1/2 cup cake meal plus 1/2 cup potato starch. Can I substitute cornstarch for the potato starch? In what quantities?

Editor: I've never baked much with cornstarch (which is a grain starch) or potato starch (which is a root starch), but it sounds so interesting! Readers, have you tried baking with cornstarch instead of potato starch before?
