Self rising flour is a sort of short cut flour which has salt and baking powder (chemical leavening) already mixed into it. I know it is called for in some biscuit and muffin recipes.

It seems to me self rising flour is a basic pantry ingredient for convenience in England. I find it called for often in pancake or scone recipes. Seeing it in a recipe can really throw us off here in the United States, but it is available in most grocery stores, and I found directions for making your own self-rising flour by Martha Stewart here

It's a mixture of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
