Have you ever been getting ready to do some baking, and realize you’re not sure if your baking powder is still good? There’s an easy way to find out. Just drop a teaspoon of the baking powder into a cup of hot water. If it bubbles up heavily, the baking powder is still good. If it doesn’t bubble up, it’s time to buy another can. Now… that was easy, wasn’t it?
If you want to skip the trip to the store or find yourself in a pinch, here’s how to make your own baking powder:
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon corn starch (optional)
- Just blend the ingredients.
