To make your own baking powder if you run out and need to substitute, combine 1 teaspoon baking soda with 2 teaspoons cream of tartar.  This equals 1 tablespoon baking powder.

To test baking powder you have on hand for freshness, add 1/2 teaspoon into 1/4 cup hot water.  If it fizzes the baking powder is good.

  4. It has been so long since I saw a recipe that called for cream of tartar that I’ve forgotten what it’s used for. Haven’t had any in my spice cabinet in decades!!!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Cream of tartar is best known for helping stabilize and give more volume to beaten egg whites. It is used as the leavening agent in baking powders. Some people add it to their meringue, Mara.

  6. So, does cream of tartar go bad?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I have read that if kept in a cool place cream of tartar does not go bad but I would replace it myself after a couple of years.
