How to make self-raising flour from plain flour

What is the difference between self-rising flour and all-purpose flour?

Know the difference between all-purpose and self-raising white flour

All-purpose flour is versatile as it contains an average amount of protein. Self-rising flour should only be used when a recipe calls for self-rising flour because salt and baking powder (which is a leavening agent) have been added and distributed evenly through the flour

Self-rising and all-purpose white flour serve different baking purposes. Do not use self-rising flour in place of all-purpose flour or the outcome and result of your baking may be disappointing.

What is the best butter to make cookies?

I always recommend using unsalted butter when baking. Not because you do not want salt but because each brand of butter will add different amounts of salt to their product. The best way to control the ingredients is to add the salt yourself.

Types Of Cookies

Did you know that there are 8 types of cookies?

  1. Bar cookies
  2. Drop cookies
  3. Fried cookies
  4. Molded cookies

  1. This recipe sounds delicious. Being a typical American, I thought this was for the soft, terribly unhealthy flour product that people in the South put gravy on!

    • Hi Terri, I am not keen on the soft biscuit with gravy you mentioned, but love this cookie/biscuit a lot. Maybe give it a try and let me know what you think. Thanks for always being here and part of #Senisal
