How to Make Self-Rising Flour
is easy, and all you need is 3 basic ingredients you already have in your pantry. You will want to have this how to make self-rising flour recipe on hand all the time.
I do a lot of cookie, cupcake, muffin and cake baking. Many times I find a new recipe that uses a flour I do not normally buy. Over the years, I’ve learned to use many different baking substitutions which you can easily find if you do a search on the World Wide Web. You can find most anything you need.
As a mother and grandmother I’m always getting requests to make something that needs an ingredient I do not have on that particular day. Sometimes I make a quick run to the supermarket and pick up the ingredients, then, you know those crazy days when you’re stuck in the house, not feeling well, kids sick? . . . it’s those days you wish you had this recipe at your finger tips.
Substitutions are my thing! and sharing with everyone helps me to keep these recipes in a ‘safe place’ so I know where to find them when I’m in a pinch.
Many older recipe books have terrific recipes but offer little to no help with some substitutions. Today we call them kitchen ‘hacks’ but I’m a bit old fashioned and like the ‘how to substitute’ recipes.
This how to make self-rising flour recipe substitution or kitchen ‘hack’ is one you will want to keep on hand for those “I must bake this recipe today” days.

I have a new muffin recipe that calls for self-rising flour and of course I didn’t have any. This is the recipe I will now use to make the new muffin recipe this week.
