gluten-free self raising flour in a bowl with a scoop holding some with gluten-free scones next to them

Homemade Gluten-Free Self-Raising Flour Blend

by Sandra - Fun Without Gluten
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.

  • 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.
