Note: Baking powder and baking soda lose their power faster than you realize. Unless your packages are new, test before using. To test baking soda, put a few tablespoons of white vinegar into a small bowl and add a teaspoon of baking soda. It should bubble up furiously, and the foaming should take several moments to subside. The more bubbles, the more potent the baking soda. If there is no reaction, or you only end up with a handful of small bubbles, you need to replace your baking soda.To test baking powder, baking powder, pour a teaspoonful of baking powder into a bowl or small glass.Fill the bowl with hot water to cover the baking powder (about 1/4 cup should do it).If the baking powder begins to bubble furiously, it's fine to use in your recipes.Tip: For best results, do not dip a wet spoon into the can of baking powder when measuring what you need. The moisture will activate the baking powder left behind in the can and it won't be as good to use next time. If you see lumps in your baking powder, that's usually a sign moisture has found its way inches.
