How to substitute Baking Powder in Recipes

                   How to Substitute Baking Powder in Recipes.

     1)  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.

     2)  How much liquid does the recipe call for?  Add one more (1) teaspoon of vinegar directly to the mile and let it make "buttermilk" before mixing all together.  This seems to make moister bread or pancakes.

    3)  Mix the dry and wet ingredients together throughly, and let stand for a minute before baking or cooking.

    4)  Bke or cook according to the ret 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.
