Useful Hints And Tips On Flour Used For Baking

When the recipe requires self raising flour and you only have plain.

If the recipes you use generally require 225g self raising flour you use 225g plain flour, then to this add 2 to 4 tsps baking powder (this is a bit vague as some plain flours are stronger than others and require more, so unfortunately a bit of trial and error is needed to find the right balance) and then 1/2 tsp salt.

If the amount of self raising flour you require varies, you may want to make up a batch and keep it in an airtight jar until needed.

Lighter self raising flour mix for baking cakes.

I recently read that if you want to make a lighter cake mix when the recipe states the quantity of self raising flour needed you substitute 2tbsps of the self raising flour or plain flour mix (as above) with cornflour.
