Description

Homemade baking powder without corn starch, potato starch, or aluminum, which is in almost all store-bought baking powders.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Cream Of Tartar
  • 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot Powder

Preparation

Thoroughly mix all ingredients together, breaking up any clumps with a spoon or pestle and store in an airtight container.

1 teaspoon storebought = 1 ½ teaspoons homemade

Conversions:

1/8 teaspoon storebought = 1/8 + 1/16 teaspoon homemade (if you don’t have a 1/16 teaspoon, just use a 1/8 and swipe out half of the powder with a butterknife)

1/4 teaspoon storebought = 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon homemade

1/3 teaspoon storebought = 1/3 + 1/6 teaspoon homemade (again, since you don’t have a 1/6 teaspoon, use the 1/3 and swipe out half of the powder with a butterknife)

1/2 teaspoon storebought = 1/2 + 1/4 teaspoon homemade

2/3 teaspoon storebought = 1 teaspoon homemade

3/4 teaspoon storebought = 1 + 1/8 teaspoons homemade

1 teaspoon storebought = 1 + 1/2 teaspoons homemade

1/2 Tablespoon storebought = 3/4 Tablespoon homemade (2 + 1/4 teaspoons)

1 Tablespoon storebought = 1 + 1/2 Tablespoons homemade (1 Tablespoon + 1-1/2 teaspoons)

Thanks for posting this one, too! I never realized baking powder had all that stuff in it. I’m actually about to run out so may try to make my own instead of buying this time. Thanks again!

Thank you! I basically did a google search and found a few recipes for baking powder (since all the store-bought ones had corn or potato starch), substituted arrowroot powder for the cornstarch and messed with the ratios until I found the one that worked for my recipes.

Thank you for sharing! I use Arrowroot powder instead of corn starch all the time.
