Baking Tip: How Make Self-Rising Flour Or Cake Flour

Flour Substitutions: I don’t have a cute picture or story today. Just a couple quick tips on flour. Just the facts Mam.

You may notice sometimes recipes will call for “Self rising flour”. I notice a lot of Southern recipes call for self rising flour. I’ve heard you can make your fried chicken extra crunchy if you use self-rising flour. Have not tried it, that’s just what I’ve heard. You can make a quick batch by taking 1 Cup flour and adding baking powder and salt. If you need cake flour and don’t have any, you can also make a quick batch and here is the recipe below.

Self Rising Flour:

1 Cup All-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1  1/2 tsp. baking powder

(whisk to combine)

Cake Flour:

3/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp. All-purpose flour

2 Tbsp. cornstarch

(whisk to combine and voila~ you have 1 Cup of cake flour)

Happy Baking!
