Learn how to make your own self-rising flour from ingredients you already have.
What is Self-Rising Flour
Self-rising flour is a mixture of all-purpose flour and leavening agents – salt and baking powder. The leavening agents are mixed evenly throughout the flour so baked goods rise consistently and produce a predictably good result. You’ll often see recipes for biscuits (like my 5-Ingredient Flaky Cheddar Biscuits), pancakes, or quick breads (non-yeast breads like banana bread) call for self rising flour.
