How to Make Self-Rising Flour for Baking Biscuits and Beyond

For a batch of homemade self-rising flour, you’ll only need all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a little more than a teaspoon of salt. One important baking tip before we get started: Self-rising flour shouldn’t be confused with self-raising flour, which you may see in British cookbooks. You may also see recipes that call for self-rising cake flour, and you can make that at home too. (But, if totally necessary, you can fake cake flour with a combination of all-purpose flour and cornstarch.) For a gluten-free blend that can be substituted in any recipe calling for wheat-based self-rising flour, opt for a 1:1 style of gluten-free flour.
