I can't believe I have failed to share this kitchen tip. While making a peach cobbler this week, a delicious one at that, I realized the recipe called for self rising flour. I have only had a few recipes ever call for it, so I don't bother keeping it on hand.
You can make your own as I did, and save yourself from buying flour you will probably never use. Here is the formula:
1 cup self rising flour=
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Sift together and use in recipe!
