Want to make mini loaf cakes (like muffins). It says to use 225g of SR flour and 1 tsp baking powder. Can I use plain and add some bicarb or something? Can't get to shop.
You can't buy self raising flour where I live - I add a teaspoon of baking powder per 500g of flour, so I'duse plain flour and 1.5-2 tsp. baking powder.
Yes I believe so, Nigella recipes are all plain + baking powder - see linkwww.nigella.com/kitchen-queries/view/Plain-Flour-vs-Self-Raising-Flour/3441
So no bicarb then?
Baking powder is a combination of bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar, so you can either add those to plain flour (you'd have to google for the proportions though, I can't remember!) or 1tsp baking powder per 500g as the pp said.
Thanks I will let you know how they turn out. I'm doing Lakeland mini loaf carrot cakes. Wish me luck!
