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.
