    Question:Fried Dough

    Fried Dough

    Could you tell me if baking powder is suppose to help the dough rise a little. I tried the recipe but the dough was flat.

    How old is the baking powder? It loses leavening power over time.
    Mix a teaspoon of it in some hot water, about 1/3 cup or so. If it bubbles it's still good, if it doesn't, toss it.

    Thanks. It still bubbles, but then why was my fried dough flat? Maybe then you should substitute the milk with water. Any suggestions on this?

    Just to check - did it bubble immediately and strongly? When it's past its prime, it will still bubble, but not as well as it does when it's very fresh.

    I guess I should have said "vigorously", or"energetically". icon_wink.gif
    Double-acting baking powder is activated by two things, liquid (so it doesn't matter if you use milk or water) and heat. I suspect yours pooped out before the heat of frying could activate it. How long have you had it?
