I use a much simpler method and although it is an estimate, I haven't encountered any problems-

1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/4 to 1/2 of a teaspoon of salt to every 1 cup of all-purpose flour.

IngredientsHere are a few versions of making SR Flour: • 500 gm. plain flour + 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder + a pinch of salt • 500 gm. plain flour + 20 ml. cream of tartar + 10 ml. bicarbonate of soda • 1 cup plain flour + 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder + 1/4 tsp. salt • 225 gm. plain flour + 2 level tsp. baking powder • 450 gm. or 16 oz. plain flour + 1 oz./25 gm. baking powder • 1 cup plain flour + 1 1/4 tsp. of baking powder. Some cooks suggest a half teaspoon of baking powder per cup of flour.• To make baking powder • Place 3 tsp. bicarbonate of soda and 4 tsp. cream of tartar in a jar and shake them well together. Store in a cool place.

Instructions

1. Whichever combination you use, sift all the ingredients together 3-4 times, to make an even mix. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

• The quantities above are only a rough guide. The amount of baking powder can vary according to a recipe and what else you have added to it. For example, 2 level tsp. baking powder is generally enough when using 250 gm. flour and 120 gm. fat. But if you increase the amount of fat and also add eggs, which all help to make it rise, you only need 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder. So, follow the recipe closely.

No, self-rising flour cannot be converted back into all-purpose flour. Salt and a leavening agent, usually baking powder, are added to regular flour to make self-rising flour, and cannot be removed by any practical method.

How can I tell if flour is self-rising or all purpose? How can I tell if flour is self-rising or all purpose?

User Avatar

no, self rising flour has leavening agents in it. Usually baking soda. You can make self rising flour with all purpose or cake flour by adding 1 tsp baking powder to 2 cups flour.

User Avatar

No. Self rising has baking powder in it and all purpose does not.

User Avatar

No, you can't make plain flour out of self rising flour, but you can make self rising flour out of plain flour, by mixing this:Self-Rising Flour Recipe:3â„4 cups all-purpose flour1 teaspoon baking powder1â„4 teaspoon saltYou can also use self-rising flour for a recipe that calls for plain flour by substituting self-rising for the flour, and leave out the baking powder and salt.

All purpose. If a recipe uses self-rising flour, it will say so.

User Avatar

Go to the store. In most recipes that call for all-purpose flour, you can't use self-rising flour.

User Avatar

Yes. Just be sure to omit the salt and baking soda/powder if using self-rising flour instead of all purpose.

User Avatar

Self rising flour is usually softer and has backing powder (soda?) added.

User Avatar

Self rising flour can be made by substituting 1 cup of all purpose flour minus 2 tsp, with the addition of 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt to make the full cup.To use self-rising flour in place of all-purpose you would use the above conversion in reverse. If all you have is self-rising flour you begin by eliminating from the recipe any levening agent such as baking powder or baking soda as that is already in self-rising flour. You would also reduce or eliminate any salt the recipe called for.

9 ounces of self rising flour, as opposed to cake flour or all purpose flour.

User Avatar

No! self rising flour has additives in it. ( salt and a leavening agent)

User Avatar

Self-rising flour usually contains baking soda, baking powder, some stablaizers, and / or yeast in it. It is very difficult to transform regular flour into self-rising flour, so it is better just to buy the kind that you will be needing.

Cake flour is a finer grained powder than all purpose. Self rising means it already has the baking powder added. All purpose may be used for either, but you would have to add baking powder, and the end product would not be quite as delicate.

User Avatar

Self-rising flour consists of all-purpose flour with salt and leavening (baking powder and/or soda.) Wholemeal self-rising flour has whole meal (whole grain or whole wheat) flour instead of all-purpose white flour, along with the salt and leavenings.

User Avatar

Self-rising flour has baking soda, baking powder and salt added in. All-purpose flour does not have these ingredients, so you have to mix them in if the recipe calls for them. For recipes that call for all-purpose flour, and you are using self-rising flour, you can leave these ingredients out.

No, cake flour is different from self rising flour. Cake flour is ground finer than all purpose flour and gives a silkier more desirable finished product.

User Avatar

All purpose. If a recipe uses self rising, it will say so.

User Avatar

To substitute all purpose flour for self rising flour, for each cup use 7/8 cup all-purpose flour plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

User Avatar

bread flour, all purpose flour, self rising flour, wheat flour, corn flour.

User Avatar

Yes, you can use self rising flour in place of all purpose flour. But you need to omit any salt and baking powder or baking soda that is called for in the recipe.

User Avatar

No, they are different. Cake flour is just wheat flour ground really fine-it is soft and silky. Self rising flour is all purpose flour that has salt and baking powder in it.

User Avatar

No. I think self-rising flour does, but normal flour definitely does not.More information:Unbleached, all-purpose flour does not have baking powder in it.Flour labeled "self-rising" contains baking powder and salt.

User Avatar

Yes. Just adjust the measurements of baking powder and/or salt to work with the amount that comes in the self-rising flour. Usually, the self-rising flour doesn't have enough baking powder for the normal cake recipes.
