|Two||types: self-rising flour and self-rising cake flour|
|Cake or all-purpose flour that has baking powder and salt added and premixed for baker’s convenience|
|Not as readily available (many countries don’t have access to this)|
|Self-rising cake flour typically made up of 1 cup cake flour + 1½ teaspoon baking powder + ½ teaspoon salt|
|Self-rising flour typically made up of 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1½ teaspoons baking powder + ½ teaspoon salt|
|Ideal for muffins, scones and more, but I tend to avoid using it whenever possible–it’s hard to find and I like to control the salt and baking powder in recipes|
