I bought a bag of this for recipe I was curious to try. (Tried and it wasn't repeatable.) I have not been successful in finding other recipes to use up the stuff. If I type "self rising flour" in epicurious search, the links most often say "don't use self-rising flour"!
What do you use this for? Any recipe suggestions? I have the impression that in England it's a more common ingredient.
It's big in the US South, pancakes, muffins, bisquits, quick breads, cakes, it's even used for a batter for dipping chicken before deep-frying. Forget the epicurious, Google "recipes with self rising flour" and you'll come up with lots of options.
Easy Currant Scones:
3 c. self-rising flour
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. currants (dried)
1/2 c. unsalted butter, cut in pieces
1 c. whipping cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter 2 cookie sheets. Sift flour into bowl. Mix in sugars and currants. Mix in butter with a pastry knife or fingers until it is like cornmeal. Stir in enough cream to form soft, slightly sticky dough. Knead dough on floured surface until combined. Roll out 3/4 inch thick. Cut out 2 inch rounds, brush with heavy cream, sprinkle with sugar and bake until golden, approximately 12 minutes.
Allrecipes.com allows one to type in a specific ingredient and then hundreds of recipes appear using that specific thing. Just found it. Great.
