As we know, flour is difficult to find right now. I have a bag of self rising flour in my pantry, waiting to be used. Recipe ideas/suggestions? Thx

Self Rising Flour

Look at British and Australian cooling websites and cookbooks. I see lots of recipes for cakes and scones using self-rising (they call it “self raising flour”.

Some ideas to use self-rising flour:
- American biscuits
- pancakes
- waffles
- any “impossible” recipe

You can probably adapt any recipe using plain flour. Just have to adjust the salt and the baking powder.

Hi Amanda. Thank you so much for your reply and for the links. I'm busy reading this morning as there are so many possibilities. I read your book "Cooking for Mr. Latte" many years ago and have been following you ever since. There are recipes from the book that still make regular rotations on our family menus. Anyhow, thank you for taking the time to help me out. Best to you and your family during this time.
