Hey everyone! I am going to be making irish soda bread and the recipe I found says not to use self rising flour. I usually dont make cakes from scratch and dont know much about baking when it comes to stuff like that. I looked at a few stores at all the flour that they have and none of them say "self rising" or "not self rising". How the heck do I know if the flour is self rising or not?!?!? icon_confused.gif Thanks in advance for any help!!

You should use 'All Purpose' flour. The difference is that 'Self rising' has the leavening (baking powder, baking soda, salt) already added. There are a few recipes where you can use SR, but most use AP so you can control the amount of leavening. Hope this helps.
