If you are a frequent gluten-free baker, this homemade gluten-free self-raising flour blend is a welcome staple to have ready-made in your pantry and takes minutes to prepare. It helps with all those bakes that need that extra lift and airy texture. I have included a homemade gluten-free baking powder recipe to add to the SRF blend.
Homemade Gluten-Free Baking Powder (this recipe makes enough to add to the SRF blend)
2tspbicarbonate of soda (baking soda or Natron)
4tspcream of tartar (Weinsteinbackpulver)
Homemade Gluten-Free Self-Raising Flour Blend
Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Transfer the combined flour to an airtight container.
Homemade Gluten-Free Baking Powder
Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
Add the baking powder to the SRF blend.
Try to use the freshest baking powder available as this guarantees even better baking and rising results. Test your baking powder by adding a small amount of boiling water to it. If it bubbles strongly, it is fresh.
During hot weather or in tropical countries, this flour is best stored in the fridge.
