Homemade Gluten Free Baking Powder Without Cornstarch
As many of you already know I have developed a sensitivity to corn. Corn hides in many more foods than even gluten does. After many unexplained stomach aches and some research on the Facebook Corn Intolerance Group I realized that cornstarch was in my baking powder. I had never looked at the label assuming it was safe and duh there it was right on my Clabber Girl Baking Soda container. I found this easy recipe posted on many forums and could not find an original source. I asked my mom if she had heard of this recipe and she says it has been around for a very very long time. This is not an original recipe made up by me, but it is one I use as in all of my recipes when I refer to baking powder as an ingredient. If you know the original source please let me know in the comments section so I may properly credit them.
This works exactly as baking powder would work in any recipe. I was really excited to find this simple corn free baking powder recipe. Many things can not easily be made corn free, but this just happens to be an easy solution.
- Mix 1 part baking soda with 2 parts cream of tartar in an airtight container.
- Shake well to combine.
- Use as you would baking powder in any recipe.
