REPLACEMENT FOR BAKING POWDER
Mix ¼ teaspoon baking soda with ½ teaspoon tartar cream. This gives you the equivalent of 1 teaspoon baking powder. If you don’t intend to use the raising agent soon, it is best to add ¼ teaspoon corn starch to the mixture. This will absorb moisture in the air and forestall a chemical reaction between the baking soda and tartar cream.
Mix ½ teaspoon baking soda with ½ cup buttermilk, sour milk or plain yogurt. This is the equivalent of 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
Mix ¼ teaspoon baking soda with 1/3 cup of molasses.
Lemon juice can be used as a substitute for some of the liquids in certain recipes that use baking soda. The juice provides the essential acidity that triggers the baking soda to act.
