Self-rising flour has been a common ingredient in the southeastern United States for many decades. Its origins date bake to England in the 1800’s. Self-rising flour allowed sailors on long voyages to make better baked goods.
It is usually used to may breads, biscuits, pancakes, and waffles.
Since baking powder and salt are already in the flour, they are omitted in recipes. The only other ingredients needed are milk/water, eggs, and fat.
Self-rising flour should not be used for:
- Yeast breads
- Recipes without baking soda.
