Here are questions related to Baking With Self Rising Flour.
If a recipes calls for flour, baking powder, and soda can I use self rising flour instead? If I can, how would I measure it to be the same?
By Louise B.03/23/2009
If a recipe calls for baking soda, it usually has an acid along with it, such as buttermilk or vinegar or cream of tartar or sour cream. If you totally omit the baking soda, and have an acid, you will not get the desired result in your recipe.
I believe that self rising flour contains baking powder only. It should substitute nicely for the same volume of regular flour and baking powder.
Measure the flour the same. Just omit the baking soda and baking powder.
Can you use Presto self rising flour to cook chicken wings?

It is fine to use that. The only difference in self rising flour and all purpose is that self rising flour has salt and baking power added to it. It is about 1/2 tsp each for every cup in the bag. Hope that helps.
Self rising already has the baking powder and salt in it, so just leave those out when using this flour.
Do you put baking soda in self rising flour?
Not unless you are using a recipe that specifically calls for self-rising flour and baking soda.

Yes you can, Patsy. For every 2 cups of flour, add 1 Tablespoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt....sift it all together :)

Yes certainly. You also need Strong Plain Flour which is specially for breadmaking. It contains a lot more gluten.
