Baking Powder: Not Gluten Free

So, I usually note in recipes, but not in all, "homemade baking powder." Why you might ask, do I spend time making homemade baking powder?

Believe it or not, Baking Powders, aren't gluten free, and they are an essential ingredient in almost all gluten free baking products! Many of them contain either gluten or Corn as an anti-caking devise, or just as fillers to help bind and rise your recipes. Homemade baking powders can be achieved, depending on the allergies of an individual.

There are also plenty of Gluten free baking powders that are made commercially and can be processed in the store!

If they still contain allergens for you, than making it is the best solution.

1/3 cup Baking Soda
2/3 cup Cream of Tartar
2/3 cup Arrowroot (or potato starch)
Mix well. Store in an airtight container.
1-½ teaspoon of this mixture = 1-teaspoon of regular baking power

Notice this has potato or arrowroot in it, if these are allergens than try, corn, tapioca, etc. You can also omit the starch entirely, if starch is a problem, and use 1 to 1 substitution.

If you want to buy commercial baking powder without starch, Bakewell creek located in New England makes some options for you!

Hope this helps!
