"And RISE they did!!! Wow, Barbara, thanks for this recipe. I believe I like it better than store bought. "
"Thank you for posting this. I had found it elsewhere and have been using it for a while. I'm corn sensitive so I use different replacements such as tapioca, potato or rice flour. I make up enough to refill my old baking powder container. I should also mention that I haven't bothered to refrigerate it and haven't noticed any problems."
"It worked perfectly and no odd flavor...yay! I didn't add the cornstarch since I wasn't storing the baking powder. My recipe called for 1 tsp of baking powder and I added 1/2 tsp cream of tartar and 1/4 tsp baking soda directly to my flour and stirred. The banana muffins turned out wonderfully--they were light and delicious."
"I've tried this twice. It even made my gluten-yeast-free bread rise, like the regular stuff. Instead of cornstarch, I used arrowroot powder."
"This is better for you than the store bought kind. This recipe does not have aluminum in it which many of the store bought kind do."
"Saved my malt-o-meal mufins. I and my children thank you. ;)"
"This was great! I was in the middle of baking brownies and discovered that I had no baking powder....remembered seeing a recipe here at Zaar and tried this one. Thank you so much for saving my day!"
"Thank you sooo sooo much! What a waste my banana bread would have been without this!!"
"I made pot pie tonight with a biscuit crust that calls for baking powder. I completely forgot i was out. Did a search here and up came this recipe. Thanks much for saving dinner...worked like a charm. :)"
"Great recipe to keep on hand. I used this in Recipe #80852 and they turned out perfectly. Made for Diabetic Cooking Tag Game."
"Instead of buying baking powder I use this in everything. Works just as good if not better. Never had any issues. Thanks for the recipe Dancer!"
"This is a nice recipe. Thanks for postimg."
"I always try to make my own mixtures when possible. Thanks for posting this one here. It works well, and replaces Rumsford on my shopping list."
"Love this recipe for when I only need a little bit. My baking is much lighter with this homemade baking powder. The cornstarch is a must for me since the powder seems to clump without it. Thank you for this healthy choice!"
"I had to make cookies for my kids fall festival at school. I had made sure to purchase all the ingredients, except baking powder. Thank you. This recipe allowed me to get the cookies made without another trip to the store."
"Thank you! I was baking and had none, thought that's it, gotta stop what I'm doing... WAIT NO I think I remember a fellow zaar posting BAKING POWDER! Thank you again Dancer! "
"I was in the middle of a double batch of waffles when I ran out! Your mix worked great. The waffles turned out exactly the same as usual. Roxygirl in Colo."
"What Peaceful Solution said. I quadrupled it and it worked very well during my 7 cakes and 2 brownies baking spree. It takes less than a minute to put together."
