a question about substituting self-rising flour

I want to make maple cornbread tonight; the recipes calls for 1 cup all-purpose, 1 cup yellow cornmeal, plus baking powder and salt. I do not have all-purpose so I am going to substitute self-rising and omit the baking powder and salt. Will that be okay since the cornmeal has no leavening agents?

Here's a recent thread about self-rising flour. You may still need to add a bit of baking powder and salt due to the cornmeal portion. http://www.food52.com/foodpickle/3544-what-exactly-is-self-rising-flour-is-there-a-way-to-make-it-at-home-with-plain-all-purpose-flour-an
