If your recipe calls for self-rising flour and you only have all-purpose, here's how you can adapt.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 1 minute

Here's How:

  1. Using a dry measure, measure the desired amount of flour into a separate container.
  2. For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  3. Mix to combine.


  1. You can use self-rising flour in yeast bread recipes, but you'll need to omit the salt.
  2. If you use self-rising flour as a substitute for all-purpose flour in a quick bread, omit salt and baking powder.

What You Need:

  • all-purpose flour
  • salt
  • baking powder
