        If I cut out the baking powder & the salt could I use self rising flour?

        Not in this recipe, it won't come out- this recipe only calls for 1 tsp of baking powder with 8 cups of flour.

        A Cup of Self Rising Flour Contains:

        1 cup all purpose flour
        1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
        1/2 teaspoon salt

        You would be adding 4 Tablespoons of Baking Powder to the Recipe.
