i'm not sure but these didn't work for me. i made the self rising flour using 1cup flour, 1.5 tbsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt so the recipe already has baking powder in it, so to add an additional 4 TBSP of baking powder seemed like alot to me but i did it anyway because i'm a recipe follower. Of course they turned out bitter and unedible so it was a complete waste of time and materials. i'm assuming now that it must be 4 TSP but even that seems like alot when using self rising flour. sorry.
