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.
