  • Self-Rising Flour

  • 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

Directions

To make your own cake flour — for every needed cup of cake flour, measure 1 cup of bleached all-purpose flour and remove 2 tablespoons from that cup (some bakers prefer to replace those 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour with 2 tablespoons cornstarch, but I choose not to), so 1 cup bleached all-purpose flour minus 2 tablespoons = 1 cup of cake flour --------------- To make your own self-rising cake flour (as mentioned above) – mix together 1 cup cake flour + 1 1/2 teaspoon + baking powder + 1/2 teaspoon salt for every cup needed (source: here) ------------- To make your own self-rising flour — mix together 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder + 1/2 teaspoon salt for every cup needed (source
