Apple crisp with self rising flour

Apple crisp with self rising flourMy grandma makes the best apple crisps. She’s made one for just about every holiday meal as long as I can remember, so for me it’s the ultimate comfort food. Since we couldn’t get together for Easter this year, I decided to make my own apple crisp using my mix of apples and self rising flour instead of traditional flour.Apple Crisp with self Rising flour in bowl 2

Why self rising flour? 

I bet you’re wondering why I seem to only use self rising flour, right? Fair enough. It started with a bag of self rising flour I was trying to get rid of a few years ago, and I found I preferred it in baked goods.

For the past few years I’ve used self rising flour in every type of baking I do {besides baked sandwich breads}. Self rising flour has a lighter texture than traditional flour because of the self rising aspect, which makes for amazing baked goods. The bonus is the all-in-one combination cuts down on ingredients dramatically. Why not make baking even easier?
