  1. self-raising flour

    Self-raising flour is a type of flour that has leavening agents - baking powder and a salt - already mixed into it. When mixed with a liquid, these substances produce gas that makes dough or batter rise and gives baked goods such as cakes, cookies, and muffins a fluffy texture. This flour is often used in baking for convenience as it eliminates the need for adding separate leavening agents.
