Did You Know?
Most commercially-produced baking powder contains sodium aluminum sulfate (again with the sulfates!).
Homemade Baking Powder Recipe
You can make your own baking powder so easily! When you make it yourself, you can be sure it is sulfate-free.
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon corn starch (optional, to store mixture for future use)
Mix the baking soda and cream of tartar together until well combined. Use immediately.
One tablespoon of baking powder.
Add a teaspoon of corn starch to the mixture, and stir. This will absorb any moisture from the air, and prevent the baking powder from reacting before you need it. Store in an air-tight container.
Note – I actually always have cream of tartar on hand because it makes The. Best. Playdough Recipe. Ever. I have found it pretty inexpensively at target and when it’s on sale, I stock up.
