How to Make Self Rising Flour

APF versus SRF

I usually use self rising flour for my fry bake, and having sent the hubster on a scavenger hunt the night before, i didn’t even want to ask him to go out and get the one thing I needed to make breakfast before our road trip.

So, i made it myself… and I actually doubled the batch, so I wouldn’t have to buy it anymore. A bag of quality all purpose flour is $2.19 and it’s $3.48 for self-rising flour. Maybe it doesn’t matter that much to you. Maybe you don’t have to count your pennies like I do. Maybe your husband didn’t leave town for 5 days and leave you $30 and 2 kids to make miracles with (just saying, and still grateful) .

Still, it’s kinda interesting. Most importantly, to my sons anyway, is that the self-rising flour gets you bigger and softer chocolate chip cookies (go figure). Plus, it’s just cool to make your own shit.

Self-rising flour is all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt added.

To make your own, all you have to do is combine:

2 teaspoon of salt

4 cups of all-purpose flour

6 teaspoons of baking powder

Mix well and put in a cute air tight container, like these from Marshalls.

You can even make a batch or two extra and save for next time.

You can make your own pretty easily.
