  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  1. Mix the baking soda and cream of tartar. Use in place of one tablespoon of baking powder.

If you wish to store it for long term use, add a teaspoon of corn starch, potato starch, or arrowroot powder and seal it in an airtight container prominently labeled "My Amazing Homemade Baking Powder," 'cuz who doesn't need a little pat on the back in the kitchen!
  3. Multiply the quantity of ingredients by how much baking powder you need, keeping in mind that there are three teaspoons in one tablespoon. Hello, math skills! (Cheat: if you need 2 tablespoons of homemade baking powder, that's 2 teaspoons soda, 4 teaspoons tartar, and 2 teaspoons corn starch if you're using it.)
