Lately, I have only been buying all-purpose flour at the grocery store. A few years ago, I kept a canister filled with all-purpose flour and another filled with self-rising on my kitchen counter. What I noticed was that I used my all-purpose flour a lot more quickly than I used the self-rising, leaving the self-rising to not be as fresh when I reached the bottom of the canister as I would like for it to be.
I also do not like having to have two kinds of flour when we travel in our RV. The space is absolutely treasured and I do not take one single inch of it for granted!
I now make my own self-rising flour as I need it.
It’s really simple to make and only takes about two seconds.
Here’s how I make it.
Self-rising flour is wonderful to use for that perfect buttermilk biscuit, buttermilk pancakes, and especially these cinnamon roll biscuits that I make. It is definitely an ingredient that I use frequently, I now just mix my own really quickly.
How about you? What kind of flour do you use most often?
