Tips to make self rising flour
- use all purpose flour for this recipe
- measure self-rising flour like regular flour
- keep all dry goods in airtight containers to avoid moisture and infestation
- use baking powder, don’t use baking soda. Baking powder is a "ready made mixture" of baking soda and a sour: once this powder comes in contact with a liquid, bubbles (carbon dioxide gas, like in all fuzzy drinks, including champagne) will arise and make your pastry or dough lighter. Baking soda always asks for an extra sour ingredient in recipes, like yogurt or buttermilk.
