So you come across a recipe that looks great. But wait. It calls for “self-rising flour.” I don’t buy bags of self-rising flour. Who knows if I’ll ever use it for more than the one recipe? There’s gotta be a way around that. Well guess what?

It’s easy to make your own self-rising flour!

Mix together in a bowl or storage container:

4 cups of all-purpose flour minus 2 TBSP

2 TBSP baking powder

2 tsp salt

Easy peasy! And now you have self-rising flour. Keep it up to a few months. By the way, it’s also easy to make your own baking mix and powdered sugar!

    Wow this is super easy lol!! Here I thought it’d be all confusing!! Wrong again!

  2. Judith Martinez says:

    Some brands of flour actually have the instructions right on the bag! I’ve never, ever purchased self rising flour.

  3. Regina Partain says:

    You are so right. There is never a reason, in my book, to buy self rising flour. It is so easy to make. I am, however, going to have to check out your recipe for powdered sugar.

    Thanks for sharing.
