Did you know most baking powder contains aluminum? Here's how to make your own baking powder - corn and aluminum-free!
Looking for a recipe for homemade baking powder? No? Maybe you should be! - most baking powders are made with GMO corn - did you know that aluminum is in lots of commercial baking powders — sodium aluminum sulfate. This recipe makes 1 cup - 1/4 cup baking soda 1/2 cup cream of tartar 1/4 cup arrowroot (if you are not avoiding corn, non GMO cornstarch may be substituted.) Directions 1. Blend all ingredients with a whisk to mix well. 2. Use as you would regular baking powder.
SELF RISING FLOUR: All purpose flour with salt+ baking powder(a leavening, i.e. rising agent) added to it. You can make your own, or buy it in the store. To make your own, one cup of flour, add 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder+ 1/2 tsp of salt. Stir with a whisk to make sure it is evenly distributed. Self rising flour is used for biscuits+ quick breads most often.
