Recently, I picked up what I thought was all purpose flour. It was on sale and I was in a hurry.
I put it in the pantry when I got home and didn’t think another thing about it. Well, a few days later, I opened what I though was all purpose flour and proceeded to fill my flour canister. Then I noticed on the label it was Self Rising Flour. I never use self rising flour and if I did I thought it was only good for making biscuits.
Wrong!!! Any recipe that that calls for all purpose flour, salt and baking powder can use self rising flour. Just omit the salt and baking powder. Huge time saver and since the salt and baking powder are already mixed in, I have found my baked items are lighter. Better mixing than mine.
I have made cakes and brownies using self rising flour . Absolutely delicious! I have included a recipe for brownies that I have made several times. I love brownies. This recipe uses self rising flour and cocoa. Super easy.
See how easy? You can have fresh baked brownies every day. Well maybe not every day. That wouldn’t be good for the waistline .
So next time you’re in the grocery store pick up some self rising flour for quick baking!
