wholemeal/wholegrain self raising flour

g'day I am up really early this morning with not much to do so I thought I'd try a new recipe. Lo and  behold I've run out of wholemeal/wholegrain self raising flour. So...just wondering if the same can be applied to wholemeal plain flour as we do with plain white flour ....add some baking powder?

Hi Virginia.  Some self-rising flours also contain salt, at least in the US.

Sure, why not?  Throw some in and see what happens.  :)

postiechic I gave it a shot.....I guess it worked. I can't compare the finished product to one that would've been made with self raising wholemeal coz it was the first time I'd made this thing. Which btw was a 'health loaf'.......%100 wholemeal flour, all bran cereal, sultanas, canned apricots incl juice, raw sugar and coconut. No eggs, no fat. So I wasn't too sure if it was just gunna completely self destruct when I tried to slice it. It looked rather boring. Tasted...........yummmmm!
