How Would You Do It?

Do you use self rising flour? I have NEVER used it or purchased it! So the other day I came across a recipe that I wanted to make that called for self rising flour. Of course I wanted to make the recipe right then! What should I do? I "googled" self rising flour and found out how to make it. The instructions called for 6 cups of all purpose flour. So I put everything in a zip lock bag, mixed it all up, took out the 1 1/2 cups of flour called for in the recipe I was making, and then I put the rest of the self rising flour in the freezer until the next time I make this recipe and need it again!
Oh my! I will share the recipe tomorrow. You will want to make it too. So go get your self rising flour ready. You're gonna need it! Will you buy it or make it?
Have a great day.
Love, Rachel
P.S. If anyone knows Hattie who won the give away mentioned below, please tell her to contact me. I can't find her.

I always buy self-rising flour, it's just easier for me, I think most of my recipes call for it anyway. ;) Can't wait for you to share your recipe!!! Have a wonderful Monday!

How clever of you, Rachel! What a great idea - seems silly to buy it when you can make it. Thanks!

I would make it, too! I've done it before. it's ridiculous to go out and buy more flour when there's perfectly good flour and baking soda in the house! That's my 2 cents! LOL!

Hello Rachel,
What a great idea. I have bought self rising flour before, but did not end up using it all, so I had to throw it out. I would guess you could cut the quantity in half according to what your needed?? You could just make up the amount your needed.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Rachel,
I hope you and your family are well and enjoying a great summer. I would have to say that I would make it myself! (And what did we ever do before google?!)Have a good week!
Hugs, Victoria Lynn

That is exactly what I do. I don't buy Self Rising flour any longer. For those who are Gluten sensitive, there is a gluten free self rising flour as well. I just found it on Living Without website.
