I'm very sensitive to the taste of baking powder, so I'm always looking for baking powder alternatives, including Bakewell Cream.
Thank you so much for a baking powder recipe WITH the chemical function! I had some Bakewell Cream (sodium acid pyrophosphate), and although the bag said "use in place of baking powder" I made the worst buttermilk biscuits (which makes sense now that I've read the Wikipedia entry on baking powder, it had excess acid). BUT now that I've made baking powder, mixing the sodium acid pyrophosphate with baking soda and cornstarch (or you can use less "baking powder" and omit the filler), my biscuits are tasty again!
This is a winner on two fronts: I can now use that Bakewell Cream for good results, and the results taste better than any another baking powder I've tried!

I was looking for a baking powder substitute in a pinch. After trying this recipe, I won't purchase baking powder and will just use this recipe. Like Velvetinenut, I also substituted corn starch and decreased the amount used by 1/2 and it worked well. Many thanks, Missy Wombat.people found this review Helpful.

I haven't made this, but bless you for putting this on here. The aluminum thing freaked me out when I heard about it years ago, and since then I have used Clabber Girl Aluminum-free. I'm almost out, so I will try and do this! Thank you!people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful... Was this review helpful to you?

I made this recipe in a smaller scale and used cornflour as the starch component. However, I use 1 tsp per cup of flour. It has never failed me before.people found this review Helpful.
