Self raising flour is just plain flour with a raising agent added. So long as you have a rasing agent such as baking powder then you can use plain flour to make anything you like.

Oh really? But how much baking powder do I use?

A teaspoon or 2 should be fine.

Yes, I do this all the time.

I add 3 teaspoons of baking powder to 12 oz of flour.

I use one really heaped up tsp to 500g of flour. Maybe use a bit more if it is baking powder that has been in the cupboard a while as it gradually loses its power.

I add 3 tsp bp to 8oz flour. I actually think this works better than using self-raising and tastes better too.

Wow! Maybe I need to use more. [ grin]

I did a recipie with 80z flour and 3 tsps of baking powder..they were nice but not very risen...will try again!

My reciepe has 2 tsp baking powder per cup of plain flour.
