Cream of Tartar and Bicarbonate of Soda


2 ordinary teaspoonfuls (or 4 level ones) of cream of tartar; half this quantity of bicarbonate of soda, and quarter the amount of salt, is sufficient to raise one pound of white household flour. Rice flour is simply mixed with these ingredients to make them keep well, i.e. prevent them ‘caking’ or getting lumpy. 3 ordinary teaspoonfuls of ground rice added to 2 ordinary teaspoonfuls of cream of tartar and 1 ordinary teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda, sifted together three times makes a very good baking powder.
