  • 1 cup (120 grams) All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl; use as directed in your recipe.


  • Measure accurately. I recommend reading this post on how to measure your flour accurately. For best results, use a kitchen scale!
  • If you are making a tender baked good like biscuits, you may want to replace the all purpose flour with a lower protein content flour such as a pastry flour.
  • You may need to add a bit more liquid to your recipe when using the DIY version because of the differences in protein content.
  • Label your Self-Rising Flour with a date so you know when it will expire. Use within a year.
