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 can always double or tripe this recipe to have on hand for the future.

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.

    My cousin married a Kentucky girl. (Bollingreen). She made what she called a “hot” buttermilk cake w/a buttermilk glaze. Do you have a recipe for that. It was so good. The glaze was rather clear.
