Most commercial baking powders contain a grain-based starch. Thankfully it’s easy to make your own.

Active Time: 2 minutes

Grain-Free Baking Powder
Makes: about 6 tablespoons
  • ¼ cup cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca starch (optional) (see Baker’s Note)
  1. Whisk the cream of tartar, baking soda, and tapioca starch together in a small bowl.
  2. Store in the pantry in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.

Baker’s Note: Starch-Free Baking Powder

Tapioca starch helps prevent baking powder from clumping. If you want to make starch-free baking powder, go ahead and omit the tapioca starch, just be sure to sift the baking powder to remove any clumps before using.
