    Default Additive free flour for baking?

    Is it possible to get flour for cake making that rises without raising agents in it? Probably a stupid question!

    I am working on an additive free diet for DS to see if it helps behaviour. I thought by making some cakes I could provide a better type of treat food but then realised flour has raising agents!!

    Can he eat nuts? You could try almond meals etc or coconut flour.

    Will it rise without baking powder added though? Anyone try this before? He's not allergic or intolerant to anything just trying to reduce additives

    Or maybe there's a cake alternative.....

    You can easily make your own self raising flour using bicarb or bicarb+tartaric acid. Google will give you lots of recipes. Bicarb is a salt, tartaric acid is made from certain fruits.

    The raising agents in commercial SR flour are essentially salts (including bicarb) and, according to the Fed Up list of additives, not of concern.

    I only bake with coconut flour and add half a teaspoon of bicarb. Have found my daughter doesn't react to it at all unlike other foods/flours.
