Don’t forsake your favorite recipe that requires self rising flour, thanks to this simple DIY recipe to make self rising flour in a flash!
Growing up, my mom always had two containers of flour. On one container she labeled it “All Purpose Flour” and on the other she labeled it “Self Rising Flour.” I noticed that there was always less self rising flour than all purpose flour and the main reason for this was simply because she used the self rising flour a lot more. Quite frankly, when she took out the self rising flour, I knew she was going to be making something I loved (e.g. cakes, pumpkin bread, biscuits, etc.)
Living abroad, is always a good reminder for me that it’s important to know how to make self rising flour. So, thus this recipe. It really is quite essential; not only if you can’t find it at your local grocery store but also for the simple reason that if you run out, you do’t have to run to the store right that moment in order to finish off the recipe.
Here’s the long and short of it (“The Recipe):
Self Rising Flour
- 1 c all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Place all of the ingredients in a bowl, stir, and add to your favorite recipe.
Note: If you need multiple cups of self rising flour, you can multiply this recipe based on your baking needs.
I love it.
Great recipe. I’m the opposite of your mom: I hardly ever use self-rising flour. So this is perfect for me, I can make things that call for it, without having to buy a whole bag. Thanks!
