What a money saver. I swear my baking is twice as light and fluffly with this than the stale store bought stuff. I have tried other recipes that didn't include the cornstarch, but didn't like them as much since the baking powder seemded to clump together too much. I have been using this for the past 6 months and I won't ever buy it again from the store. THank you for sharing!

I saw this posted in 'Cooking Light' magazine (Nov 2008) and it calls for 2 parts cream of tartar and 1 part each of baking soda and cornstarch (ie: 1 Tbsp cream of tartar and 1/2 Tbsp each of baking soda and cornstarch). I'm sure both ways work well. I was going to post the recipe, but saw you had it here. Thanks for sharing. :)

Fantastic! I know I've got baking powder somewhere! But I got sick of searching and this was so simple. Thank you!

Worked for me! I was making waffles and didn't realize I was out of baking powder. This was a great sub.

I'm in the middle of a blizzard here in Ohio and I wanted to make biscuits. I then realized I had no baking powder. What a life saver this was!

I didn't realize I had run out of baking powder and had to make some lemon bread. I remembered this recipe and made a batch. Worked great. Thanks.
