Errrr, I accidentally bought some self-rising flour instead of standard, run of the mill flour.
- What in the heck is “self-rising flour”?
- Does anyone have any recipes that call for self-rising flour, so I can see if I can rid of this stuff?
Update: Aha. Well, with more judicious Googling than I had been doing, I found the following: “1 cup of self-rising flour contains 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. It can be used instead of all-purpose flour in a recipe by reducing the salt and baking powder according to these proportions.”
So to use self-rising flour in recipes asking for flour, baking powder, and salt will require math. Well, okay.
