Gluten-free baking powder
Duh. It just occured to me that some people may not know that there is gluten in commercial baking powder. For people like me, who are allergic but not celiacs, it's not enough gluten to be a big deal. But for celiacs, every little bit of gluten can be bad. Why not control it where you can?
Here's a recipe for making your own gluten-free baking powder from celiac.com
Baking Powder (Gluten-Free)
(Gluten & Corn Free)
1/3 cup Baking Soda
2/3 cup Cream of Tartar
2/3 cup Arrowroot (or potato starch)
Mix well. Store in an airtight container.
1-½ teaspoon of this mixture = 1-teaspoon of regular baking power
And there are a few pre-made versions that you can buy online too.
