Self rising flour is a flour that has leavening already inside of it. Depending on the brand, it contains all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. It is packaged together, and when using this flour in recipes, omit the leavening called for in the recipe.

Using self rising flour can be a time saver in the kitchen. You only need to measure the flour as far as the dry ingredients go (no leavening). If you are looking for recipes using self rising flour, try a biscuit dough. It is easy to work with, and comes out great. This makes a larger batch, and can be halved as needed.

Biscuit Recipe Using Self Rising Flour

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups self rising flour
  • 8 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 1/3 cups to 1 1/2 cups milk

Procedure:

  1. Place the self rising flour and shortening in a mixing bowl, and cut together until the mixture is fine crumbs. Add in the milk, 1 1/3 cups to start with and adding a tablespoon at a time until the mixture forms a wet ball.
  2. Knead the dough on a floured work surface about 10 to 12 times. Roll out the dough to 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. Cut with a round biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet
  3. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for about 10 to 13 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden and the centers have cooked through.
  4. Serve warm with butter.
