This may sound ridiculously self-explanatory if you've been cooking for a while. But if you are a newbie to baking at all, tragedy may strike when a recipe calls for self-rising flour and Oh no! You're out! The only thing in the pantry is all-purpose flour, and trust me, they are not the same. Never fear! This is one of those handy tricks you can bring out if you're in an ingredient bind.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking POWDER (not soda)
Either stir or sift ingredients together and Presto! - Self-Rising Flour. Time to Bake!
