    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.

    And RISE they did!!! Wow, Barbara, thanks for this recipe. I believe I like it better than store bought.

    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.
