Not all that long ago, if a recipe called for “self-rising flour”, I thought I had to go to the grocery store to get some, so quite often, I’d just look for another recipe.
There’s really no need to ever buy self-rising flour, though, since you can whip up your own in mere seconds. All self-rising means is that leavening agents (baking powder and salt) have been added to the flour for you.
To make regular (all-purpose) flour into self-rising flour, all you need to do is add a bit of baking powder and salt.

Seriously. Will you ever buy self-rising flour again?
