How to make Self-Rising Flour
Self-rising flour is a waste of money. Why buy it when you can easily make it at home?
It's quite simple - all you need is 3 ingredients: all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. For every cup of self rising flour needed, I add 1/2 tablespoon of baking powder and 4 pinches (1/2 teaspoon) of salt to one cup of regular flour. Of course, that results in some extra flour. However, the additional amount won't make a significant difference to your final product. If you really care about precision, take out the extra 1/2 Tbsp and 4 pinches of flour. Then, you can have a perfect cup of self-rising flour. Since I'm a lazy baker, I usually go the first way.
