Where a recipe already uses buttermilk or yoghurt, baking soda can be used without cream of tartar (or with less).
Alternatively, lemon juice can be substituted for some of the liquid in the recipe, to provide the required acidity to activate the baking soda.
In China, a small amount of powdered coal is sometimes added to baking soda to simulate baking powder.
