If you ever need self-rising flour and do not have any, this is what to do. It will save you a trip to the store.


  1. Combine all ingredients and use in place of self rising flour.
  2. May double or triple if more is needed.

Darlene you just saved me with this recipe. I was making a cobbler and reached for the flour and measured it had the sugar in it and the milk. I remembered..."self rising flour" oh no...no problem came to zaar and here we are. Sure enough I have my peach cobbler and we are all happy. Wish I could give you more. Thank You

Wow! This works so well. I'm limited on cupboard space, so this definitely beats having to keep multiple types of flour around. Thanks for the great reicpe!

Worked like a charm! I'm so glad I found this recipe. I don't use self-rising flour often enough to justify buying it. Now I don't have to. Thanks for sharing.
