No! It is not the same thing. Self-rising flour has extra salt and baking powder and will throw off the recipe.

Yes! You can substitute self rising flour for all purpose flour in a recipe! Just omit or adjust the baking soda and salt in the recipe that calls for using all purpose flour if you decide to use self rising and you'll be just fine.

Rule of thumb is that self rising already has 1 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp of salt added per each cup.
