Self-Rising Flour is a great item to have in your pantry; already made, I have used it in a lot of my different recipes lately, including:

But unless you have some on hand, you probably pass by these recipes or spend some time searching for the perfect Self-Rising flour after trying to figure out what exactly this self-rising flour is.

What Is Self-Rising Flour?

Self-Rising Flour is often used in baking since you do not need yeast when using this flour. This flour allows the bread to rise without yeast, and you can use it for everything from homemade bagels to pizza crust.

What is the difference between self-rising flour and all-purpose flour?

All-purpose flour (as the name would suggest) can be used for almost everything for baking, cooking, coating, vegetables, and as a thickening agent in rues.

All-purpose flour contains an average amount of proteins.

Self Rising flour, however, includes baking powder and salt. The baking powder and salt have been evenly distributed through the flour.

Self-rising flour is mostly found in baking recipes, such as biscuits, muffins, bagels, cookies, cakes, and scones.

What should I eliminate with self-rising flour?

The critical thing to remember is that since the self-rising flour already has baking powder and salt in the flour, you do not add any more.

How To Make Self-Rising Flour

This is a quick and easy substitution for any self-rising ingredient in any recipe; all you need is:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

It is important to ensure it is well mixed and that the baking powder and salt are evenly distributed in the flour.

How To Store Self-Rising Flour

I always make a batch and then keep it in my pantry. The most important thing is to keep the flour in an airtight container. And place it in a dry and cool place.

After about a year, the baking powder in the self-rising flour will have lost its concentration, so after a year, dispose of it, and make a new batch.
