For 1 cup self-rising cake flour flour, add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt (to your 1 cup cake flour).

Confirmed. Those are the instructions from King Arthur Flour.

Hi, I believe that you can add 1 1/2 (one and a half) teaspoons of baking powder per cup of cake flour, and sift together several times. Then I would still add the additional 1/2 teaspoon baking powder that the recipe calls for. Hope that helps/works! Thanks!
