Measure the flour the same. Just omit the baking soda and baking powder.

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.

I do this substitution all the time! Just be sure to omit the baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Remember : Good cooks always have lots of friends.
