  • Self-rising Flour?

    • What is it?

      • Simply a mixture of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt
      • Commonly used throughout the Southern US, as well as other countries
      • It's not meant to replace yeast or plain flour -> In fact, it is recommended to not combine with any other "leavening agent"
      • Common for "quick-rise" items (biscuits, pancakes, cupcakes, etc.)
      • You can read more about its use and history here or here
    • How to make / substitute

      • Known ratio:

        • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
        • 1.5 tsp Baking Powder
        • 0.25 tsp fine salt
      • Mix together as evenly as possible - whisking will help
