What Is Self-Rising Flour?

Self-rising flour is a combination of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Chances are high that you already have those staples in your pantry already too. The blend is typically comprised of 1 cup of all-purpose flour plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon fine salt.

The History of Self-Rising Flour

Self-rising flour was created in the mid-1800s by an English baker, Henry Jones, who hoped to sell it to the British navy so that they could make fresher baked goods available to sailors. He patented his invention in the United States in 1849, giving rise (pun intended) to modern dry mixes like Bisquik, Jiffy, and later boxed cake mix. It remains a popular staple in England and the southern United States.

When to Use Self-Rising Flour?

Self-rising flour was created for baking quick breads, biscuits, mugcakes and pancakes. You’ll occasionally see it called for in cake and cupcake recipes. Self-rising flour should not be used in yeast breads, nor should it be used in place of plain all-purpose flour.

What is the difference between self-rising flour and all-purpose flour?

Self-raising flour has a raising agent, and sometimes salt, already added to it. Plain flour requires you to add your raising agents separately to make your bakes rise.
