Homemade Self-Rising Flour

This is one of those recipes that I’ve had around forever and I’m not quite sure where it came from. It’s nice to have when you need self-rising flour for a recipe but you just don’t want to run out and buy some!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

*Makes one cup

Fill a one cup measuring cup with all-purpose flour, leveling with a flat surface. Remove 2 teaspoons of the flour. Pour remaining flour into a bowl. Add baking powder and salt. Mix together.

I’m not sure how long this will keep but I imagine if it’s in an air tight container it should be ok for a while. I usually just make a few cups worth and store for a couple of weeks or just make it as I need it.
