Self-Rising Flour


What is self-rising flour?
Self-rising flour is flour with leavening agents already incorporated which will give your end product a lighter, softer texture. This type of flour is generally used for preparing scones, biscuits, muffins, etc. 

Have you ever run out of self-rising flour or needed it and decided to skip the recipe because you were out. Well, since self-rising flour is not used as frequently as all purpose flour, instead of purchasing a 5 lb. bag, here is a quick remedy/recipe for self-rising flour that yields 1 cup. Simply double or triple the recipe for your desired needs.


1 cup minus 2 teaspoons all purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Thoroughly sift together all ingredients and store in an airtight container.

Yields: 1 cup
