How much baking powder should be added to plain flour to make it self raising?
No way! Baking powder and self rising flour are completley different things. Also, if you add the baking powder instead of the flour, the cake may taste funny because flour is… the average bace.
To make your own self-raising flour, add between 1 and 2 teaspoons of baking powder and half a teaspoon of salt for every 250g (1/2 lb) of all purpose flour.
No you don't, I thought this earlier on today, but if you have self-raising flour then you are fine. It just raises better with baking power added. Really you "must" use self-…raising in using cake or will Not rise. :')
1 1/4 tsp of baking powder/ 1/4 tsp. salt to every cup of all purpose flour
In most recipes you can, yes.
Self raising flour has baking powder in it.
Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder to each cup of flour.
Add one rounded teaspoon of baking powder to each cup of flour. I frequently do this and it always work. Note - not a flat teaspoon of baking powder, not a heaped teaspoon but… a rounded teaspoon!
One and a Quarter teaspoons of baking powder per one cup of flour.
around 3 teaspoons, but this will vary according to the recipe.
