Hi every1: I need to know how to substitute "self-rising flour" in a recipe? I always have baking flour (but not self rising), Specially if the recipe calls for baking powder & baking soda with the flour! TIA for all help.

Ok, so what I found was for every 1 c. of flour, add 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt. This is a homemade substitution for self-rising flour. Hope this helps!

Self-rising flour already has the leavening added (i.e. baking powder). Not sure why any recipe would ask for BOTH self-rising flour AND baking powder.
