Another staple in my kitchen – Self rising flour. Having self rising flour on hand can help you with many recipes and all of the ingredients come right of our pantry!! Never try to substitute one for another – for example never substitute self rising flour with all purpose flour as the end recipe would be a disaster – it won’t rise.
True to its name self rising flour is a flour in which leaving agents (which cause a dough to rise or ferment) are already mixed in – all you have to do is add rest of the ingredients that your recipe suggest and you are good to go. But if a recipe calls for all purpose flour than you need leaving agents like baking soda or baking powder to make it work. As compared to regular flour self rising flour adds soft and flaky texture to a recipe.
