baking powder is baking soda and an acid. Today most baking powder is double acting, which means it rises once when it gets wet and again when it gets hot. The answer to the question depends on what your substituting in. Sometimes baking soda is used to adjust the pH (acid or base level) of a dish. Baking powder won't really help there.
If you use the same amount of baking powder instead of baking soda in a cake it will not rise properly.
I made two batches of banana bread. One using baking soda, as called for in the recipe. The other only using baking powder (without adding any cream of Tartar). They both had the same rise to them. I was very surprised. However, I think it does depend on what type of result you are trying to achieve. If you have time to experiment, then you should. There's no better teacher than experience. That's what I did.
Yeast could be used instead of baking soda and baking powder.
Instead of baking soda you can use baking powder.
No. Baking soda is not typically a good substitute for baking powder. Baking powder, which contains sodium bicarbonate, can be substituted for baking soda in recipes, but more will be needed.
No, you cannot, baking powder and baking soda are used for different purposes.
Since the main ingredient in baking powder is bicarbonate of soda (baking soda), you may be able to use baking powder, depending on what the recipe is.
It won't rise and will be very tough to eat
You could use yeast instead of baking powder.
i say you need to eitheruse baking soda or baking powder.
Soda baking powder is bicarbonate of soda and baking powder is baking powder
It is fine to bake without baking powder or baking soda, but whatever you are baking will not rise. (unless you use yeast instead)
They won't expand or rise or bake properly. You must have baking soda to bake anything.
no. they are not the same thing. usually your supposed to put baking soda and baking powder in muffins
A smaller portion of baking soda.
No you Cant use Baking powder instead of bicarbonate of soda because if you put bicarbonate of soda into a cake mixture then you will get a very unpleasant taste !
if the recipie says to use baking powder you should use that as that is how it is sopose to be used but you may try and use baking soda if you don't have baking powder
you can but they will be flat and bland
