Why not try making your own baking powder. Then simply add 15g of baking powder to your 320g of plain flour to make self raising flour.

    I found this recerpie when I was house sitting for a friend with a TM31 - I had seen a demo of a TM5 but never used one on my own. I followed the instructions as above and to my surprise I made my very first mud cake, and it was amazing. The tin I had was small so there was enough to make two. In the two weeks I had thermo access I made about 8 of them for verious occasions - rave reviews all round. I have also passed this recerpie onto friends.
