Most commercial baking powders contain a grain-based starch. Thankfully it’s easy to make your own.
Active Time: 2 minutes
- ¼ cup cream of tartar
- 2 tablespoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon tapioca starch (optional) (see Baker’s Note)
- Whisk the cream of tartar, baking soda, and tapioca starch together in a small bowl.
- 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.
