Self Raising Flour

Easy to make self raising flour. You may be asking yourself what is self-raising flour.

Self-raising flour is flour that already contains leavening agent and salt. This just helps you to eliminate a step when measuring your ingredients.

Since self-raising flour contains leavening agent you want to switch it out every 6 months or so. Of course you can also make your own very easily.
