Darlene you just saved me with this recipe. I was making a cobbler and reached for the flour and measured it had the sugar in it and the milk. I remembered..."self rising flour" oh no...no problem came to zaar and here we are. Sure enough I have my peach cobbler and we are all happy. Wish I could give you more. Thank You

Wow! This works so well. I'm limited on cupboard space, so this definitely beats having to keep multiple types of flour around. Thanks for the great reicpe!

Worked like a charm! I'm so glad I found this recipe. I don't use self-rising flour often enough to justify buying it. Now I don't have to. Thanks for sharing.

Used this today for Country Fried Steak and it worked great! I cut the salt in half due to other reviews. Thanks Darlene.

This worked excellently. It was a bit too salty for our taste, so I'll try if it still works as well with less salt next time. The recipe was really useful - thanks for posting.

The formula works. Why buy self-rising flour when you can just make it yourself in two seconds? Less cupboard space, less money, more flexibility.

I used then when out of self-rising flour and it turned out perfectly for my biscuits! Thank you for posting!

Great tip. I had checked on Google recently, which used 1 cup flour - and it worked fine. I guess that means measurement is not critical. Thanks, Darlene
