What is a substitute for baking powder?!
To answer your question...yes. Leave out the salt, baking powder and baking soda and use self rising flour. The difference between self rising and plain flour is self rising has these ingredients mixed in already.
So you want to bake your favorite quick bread or pancakes, and there is no baking powder in the house? Here is a simple way to substitute baking powder with baking soda. Using baking soda instead is also a healthier way to leaven your baked goodies.
Note the amount of baking powder called for in your recipe, and measure *half* that amount of baking soda. Add the baking soda to your dry ingredients, and sift as usual.
How much liquid does the recipe call for? Add one (1) teaspoon of vinegar per cup of liquid in the recipe. If the liquid is milk, I like to add the vinegar directly to the milk and let it make "buttermilk" before mixing it all together. This seems to make a moister bread or pancake.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together thoroughly, and let the batter stand for a minute before baking or cooking.
Bake or cook according to the rest of the recipe instructions. This is such a simple way to cook healthier foods! Baking soda and vinegar are healthy alternatives to baking powder, which usually contains aluminum.
Making Baking Powder
You need baking soda and cream of tartar to make baking powder.
Mix 2 parts cream of tartar with 1 part baking soda. For example, mix 2 tsp cream of tartar with 1 tsp baking soda.
Use the amount of baking powder called for by the recipe. No matter how much homemade baking powder you made, if the recipe calls for 1-1/2 tsp, add exactly 1-1/2 tsp of your mixture.
Cream of tartar is used to increase the acidity of a mixture. So, you can't always use baking soda in recipes that call for baking powder. You can switch baking powder for baking soda, however, just expect the flavor to change a little.
