Self-rising flour is an all purpose flour to which baking powder and salt have been added. So if you're going to use that instead of AP flour, eliminate the leavening and salt from your recipe
It's worth noting that some brands of self-rising flour, especially those sold mainly in the South (White Lily is one) are formulated for biscuits and have a significantly lower protein content than all-purpose flours. This can cause problems when you substitute self-rising flour in cake recipes, where a certain amount of protein is needed for structure.
