We’ve been purchasing corn free (aluminum free) baking powder due to allergies. The little cans add up in price, especially with the amounts of baking powder most gluten free recipes call for. Unfortunately, all of the bulk baking powder I could find had corn in it. I was excited to realize I could make my own. I think it actually works better than commercial baking powder.

Baking Powder Recipe:

  • 2 parts cream of tartar
  • 1 part baking soda
  • 1 part starch (arrowroot, potato, corn)

    I never knew this! I will have to try it once my BP runs out.

    I really want to try this! I’m making pancakes all the time these days so I’m using 3½ Tbsp every time.

    I really want to find some arrowroot, but needed to get something for a recipe, so I have corn starch. I might make it soon anyway.

    Thanks!

    I finally ran low on Baking Powder (3½ tsp for pancakes several times a week, go figure). I made my own replacement and have definitely noticed a difference in pancakes AND cookies. Its a good difference!
