    I'm going to make buttermilk biscuits. The recipe says to use self rising flour. It also says to use baking soda and baking powder. I'm confused I thought self rising flour already has leavening in it. Should I use baking soda and baking powder as the recipe says or should I omit both?

    It does but not necessarily enough for the proper result. Try the recipe as written.

    Had this same issue over the weekend. Added Baking Powder / and / Baking soda. Biscuits tasted great, but I STILL didn't get the rise I wanted....
