Is there a substitute for self-rising flour?

I have flour for baking in the winter, but only All-Purpose flour. Can you make it into self-rising flour somehow?

  • By adding baking powder to it you can make it slef rising. I believe it's 1 teaspoon for each level cup of flour you use.

  • Self-rising flour is just regular flour with salt & a leavening agent. So, you can add 1 tsp per cup of baking powder (not baking soda), and if your recipe doesn't already call for salt, add 1/2 tsp per cup. If there is already salt in the recipe, do not add more.
