DIY Self-Rising Flour

Do you have a recipe that calls for self-rising flour but you either 1. have run out or 2. have never bought it? I land in the second category because I have always skipped by recipes that call for it because I didn’t want to buy a whole bag of “specialized” flour for one recipe. Well, when I went to make apple fritters at 10 o’clock at night and saw that it required self-rising flour I knew I was in a spot. I was not going to the store at that hour for stupid flour but Joel was so excited for apple fritters so I decided it was worth a quick internet search to see if I could make a DIY Self-Rising Flour.

Turns out it is ridiculously easy and involves ingredients you already have in your pantry. You can double or triple the recipe then keep it in an airtight container for future use or mix it up as needed.
