Unbleached flour and all-purpose flour can be used interchangeably. When a recipe calls for 1 cup of self-rising flour, simply add 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of all-purpose flour.
What’s the difference between bleached and unbleached flour?
Bleached flour is a blend of hard and soft wheat appropriate for all uses. Flour is bleached to improve color and baking performance.
What is the best way to store all-purpose and self-rising flour?
Store flour in an airtight container. Keep in a cool dry place away from heat. For maximum shelf life, store flour in refrigerator or freezer.
Should flour be sifted before use?
Sift with sifter and spoon into measuring cup to get the correct amount required in a recipe.
NOT sifting will produce too much flour which makes baked goods thick and dry.
