Self-rising Flour

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i've got this recipe book and sometimes it calls for "flour," sometimes for "self-rising flour." what the hell is the difference?? for the "flour" i just use an all-purpose which works fine, but will an all-purpose suffice, when the recipe calls for self-rising flour, or is there some big differenence between the two?

Self rising flour is flour with salt and baking powder already added. If you substitute plain flour for self rising, you have to add, I think, 1 1/4 tsp. of baking powder and a pinch or so of salt for each cup of plain flour.

These are the recipes I have for self rising flour. Frankly I haven't tried them yet.

Gluten-free self-raising flour #1

2 tablespoons potato flour

enough white rice flour to make it up to 1 cup

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon xanthan gum OR guar gum OR pre-gel starch

Self-Rising Flour #2

4 cups gluten-free all purpose flour mix (your favorite)

1 Tablespoon sugar

1/2 Tablespoon salt

2 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon baking powder

Sift together all ingredients well, store in zippered storage bags.

Can be used in any recipe calling for self-rising flour.

About 4 1/4 cups

Gluten-free self-raising flour #3

1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour plus 1-1/2

teaspoons baking powder AND 1/8 teaspoon salt. Sift and mix it all

together well before adding the rest of the ingredients.

I hope this helps!
