Good everyone:
I have a question which may seem silly icon_redface.gif What is the difference between a self rising flour and all purpose flour. I am making a cake that calls for self rising flour and I only have all purpose flour, too cold to go out (I live in Long Island New York and is cold here and lots of snow), I know I am a whimp. Thanking in advance for your help.

If you have baking powder, have a look at the info on the package - usually it will tell you how much baking powder to mix in with all purpose flour to make self raising flour. Self raising flour is just all purpose flour with the raising agent already mixed in.

Wow, Coral3, I never knew that. I'll have to make a note in my recipe box under "cake" in case I need cake flour in the future. Thanks for the info.
