011.20.09A Cooking Nerd’s Reference: Homemade Baking Powder

Posted Nov 20 2009 12:00am

My friend, Janeen, forwarded this homemade baking powder recipe to me. I’m tucking this in my files for future reference. Here’s the article and the recipe. R.I.P. Gourmet magazine.

Makes about 1/3 cup  |  Active Time: 5 min.  |  Start to Finish: 5 min.
Gourmet Magazine, January 2008  |  Recipe By Scott Peacock

Edna Lewis trained Peacock’s palate to detect the metallic undertones that commercial baking powders can impart, and he’s never looked back. Here’s their formula.

1/4 cup cream of tartar
2 tablespoons baking soda

1. Sift together cream of tartar and baking soda 3 times
2. Transfer mixture to a clean dry jar and seal tightly.

Cooks’ Note:
Baking powder keeps in a cool, dark place 6 weeks.
Homemade baking powder can be used in any recipe calling for commercial baking powder (and in the same quantity).
