Flour conversion
« on: April 20, 2020, 11:42 »
I have no self raising flour left, and none in todayís food delivery  :(

But I do have lots of plain flour. Iíve tried to search for conversions but every post has a different answer!
So does anyone know how much baking powder I should add to my plain flour to convert it to self raising.

Cake lovers in 5he family will be appreciative.

Thank you.

It is fairly easy to make your own self-raising flour. Just add 2 teaspoons of baking powder for each 150g/6oz/1 cup plain flour. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl before using, to make sure the baking powder is thoroughly distributed (or you can put both ingredients into a bowl and whisk them together). If you are baking with cocoa, yogurt or buttermilk then add 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) as well as the baking powder as generally these ingredients need a little extra leavening boost.

To make self-raising flour, mix 100g plain flour with 1 tsp baking powder.

Admitedly I just got the answer from the internet but I went for BBC Good food and I've found them to be pretty reliable for baking matter.

To make 1tsp worth of baking powder you use 1/2 tsp of cream of tartar and 1/4 tsp of baking powder.
The run on baking powder continues here.

As I always have loads of plain and strong bread flour in the larder for baking bread, never buy self raising flour.
I just add two teaspoons of baking powder to a cup of plain flour and works a treat.
