Contributed by: RuthiegirlAdded: Jan 20, 2013 at 05:50 PM


A compliant substitute for commercial baking powder. Adding a compliant starch makes the resulting powder usable in any recipe; just substitute one teaspoon of this powder for the baking powder called for in any recipe. Or you can skip the starch; it will work just as well but you'll need to use 3/4 as much as the recipe calls for.
