Homemade Baking Powder (and other cooking substitutions)

Google sure makes cooking easier! This baking powder "recipe" saved my chocolate chip waffle breakfast for the kids this morning. :)

Baking Powder
1 t baking soda
2 t cream of tartar

Mix and use. (If you want to make some to have on hand, add 1 t cornstarch to keep moisture away.)

I also used this recipe to make cream of chicken soup for a casserole tonight. Very easy and much healthier than the canned stuff.

Here's a great resource for other substitutions, too.


  1. I keep looking back at this.... do you mean 1 tsp. baking SODA instead of powder in the recipe?

    I eagerly await your next post!

  2. oops! yes, i do and have changed it. thanks, Steff!!
