What is baking powder?

Baking powder is generally just baking soda mixed with an acid, and a number of kitchen acids may be mixed with baking soda to simulate commercial blends of baking powder.

Vinegar (dilute acetic acid), especially white vinegar, is also a common acidifier in baking; for example, many heirloom chocolate cake recipes call for a tablespoon or two of vinegar.

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.
