Liljos1948 and SandyO: You can probably use a 9x13 pan for baking this cake, or a smaller dish. It depends on how thick you want the cake to be. SandyO, thanks for helping fellow readers with the flour! :) Thanks, Editor,

Can you use regular flour?

Self-rising flour has baking powder and salt already added so, no, you can't use regular flour. There are charts that tell you how much of these ingredients to add to regular flour to approximate self-rising but it's a lot easier to just get a bag of S.R. flour and keep it on hand.

What size baking dish, should this cake go in?

I, too, would like the size. With only 2 cups of flour, I'm assuming it's about a 9x9" square or similar. Too small for a 9x13" pan.
