Self rising flour can be made by substituting 1 cup of all purpose flour minus 2 tsp, with the addition of 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt to make the full cup.

To use self-rising flour in place of all-purpose you would use the above conversion in reverse. If all you have is self-rising flour you begin by eliminating from the recipe any levening agent such as baking powder or baking soda as that is already in self-rising flour. You would also reduce or eliminate any salt the recipe called for.
