How to Make Self Rising Flour
While I admit to buying Self Rising Flour on occasion, it really is easy to just Make Your Own Self Rising Flour.
There is really no effort involved and it only takes a few minutes.
With only three ingredients, you will know How to Make Self Rising Flour and save on grocery bills. I bet you already have All Purpose Flour in the house. What about Baking Powder? Now, I know you have Table Salt……
When I bake, I always use this Baker’s Math Scale and weigh in grams. The measurement is much more accurate than using a Measuring Cup and Measuring Spoons. If you want to use a Measuring Cup, make sure your flour is very aerated.
Use a spoon and sprinkle the All Purpose Flour into the Measuring Cup. That will get you pretty close to the actual weight.
The King Arthur Flour sites says there are 120 grams of All Purpose Flour to one measuring cup of All Purpose Flour. Most bakers use 125 grams as a one cup measurement. While I love and only use King Arthur All Purpose Flour, the 125 grams/one cup measurement, has always worked for me.
Most, if not all bakers that I follow, also use the weight of 125 grams for a one cup bulk measurement.
In ounces, it is 4.41 ounces, which interestingly enough, that is what King Arthur says.
A teaspoon of Table Salt is 1.42 grams. I needed Self Rising Flour for my Pressure Cooker Three Ingredient Holiday Fruit Cake, recipe, so I doubled this How to Make Self Rising Flour recipe and made a wonderful my Pressure Cooker Three Ingredient Holiday Fruit Cake.
Add all ingredient to a mixing bowl and whisk together. You now know How to Make Self Rising Flour. Check out my Old Fashion Buttermilk Biscuits, which uses Self Rising Flour, or make your own Self Rising Flour.
