How to Make Your Own Self-Rising Flour

Did you ever get ready to make a recipe that calls for self-rising flour to find that you don’t have any on hand?   Here is a handy tip on how to make a substitute for self-rising flour in a recipe. Many of you probably already know this but we can always share with others that may not.

You will be able to “share” these by looking at the bottom of this post and clicking on Facebook,  Twitter or Pinterest to share with your friends. Click on the picture of the little printer if you want to print the tip or save it.

You will need 3 ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt.

Whisk together.  You can make more and store in an airtight container to use in recipes.

Note: If you want to substitute self-rising flour for all-purpose flour in a recipe, just omit the baking powder and salt from the recipe, and use self-rising.  Self-rising flour does not contain baking soda so if you are using self-rising flour and the recipe calls for baking soda be sure to add it.
