All-Purpose Flour vs Self-Rising Flour

All-purpose flour is one of the most common flours used for baking. Though not as common, self-rising flour is also used for baking.

Unlike all-purpose flour, self-rising flour contains baking powder and salt. Cake recipes with self-rising flour will sometimes also call for baking soda if they need an additional leaving agent. However, some recipes don’t need any additional leavening agents.

If you can’t find any self-rising flour, you can easily make your own. To make it, combine four cups of all-purpose flour with two tablespoons of baking powder and one teaspoon of salt. Use your homemade all-purpose flour right away or store it in an airtight container.

Step by step Instructions

Step one: Preheat the oven and grease your tube pan

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease your 9-inch tube pan with cooking spray. Alternatively, you can grease it with butter and then dust it with flour.

Step two: Beat the butter and hot water

In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the room temperature butter with the hot water. Beat on medium speed until the butter and water mixture is well combined and creamy.

Step three: Add the flour and sugar

Using a sifter, sift in your flour and your sugar into the butter mixture. Then, stir your ingredients until they are just combined.

Step four: Add the milk, vanilla, and two eggs

Add the milk, vanilla, and two of the eggs to the batter. Then, mix it together for two minutes on medium speed to incorporate the ingredients into the batter.

Step five: Add the other Two eggs

Add the other two eggs into your cake batter. Continue to beat the mixture for another two minutes on medium speed, fully incorporating all the ingredients.

Step six: Pour your batter into your prepared cake pan

Carefully pour your cake batter into the cake pan. Give it a couple of shakes to even out the batter.

Step seven: Bake your cake

Bake your cake in the oven for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Be sure to start checking your cake around 40 minutes, as it may take less time to bake.

Once your cake is fully cooked, allow it to cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Then, let your pound cake cool completely on a wire rack before serving. You can also add any frosting or topping to your cake if desired.

Tips and tricks

In order to make sure your cake is the right consistency, be certain to make sure your ingredients are at room temperature. This is especially important with butter as if your butter is too cold, it can curdle when mixing. This will then prevent it from reaching a creamy consistency which helps the cake rise as it bakes.

When making pound cake recipes using self-rising flour, you can incorporate different flavors into the batter if you like. Instead of using vanilla extract, you can use another flavor of extract such as almond extract or lemon extract. This will give your cake a lovely flavor.

You can serve this cake plain or dusted with powdered sugar if you are wanting to keep it simple. You can also top it with vanilla buttercream frosting, cream cheese frosting, or chocolate buttercream frosting. Alternatively, you can top it with whipped cream and serve it with a side of fresh fruit and vanilla ice cream.

Store any leftover pound cake in an airtight container at room temperature for three to four days. You can also store it in the fridge for up to a week as well.

If desired, you can also freeze your pound cake as well. Wrap it in a layer of plastic wrap and then a layer of aluminum foil, freezing it for up to six months. When you are ready to serve it, allow your pound cake to thaw at room temperature for two hours or overnight in the fridge.
