Can you use baking soda instead of baking powder?

If a recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of baking soda, you'll want to substitute with 2 to 3 teaspoons of baking powder. Just make sure your baking powder is still effective and not passed its use-by date.

Can you use baking powder instead of all purpose flour?

Baking powder is a mix of sodium bicarbonate and an acid. It is a leavening agent, not a substitute for flour. When baking a cake, one might use flour by the cupful but only use baking powder by the teaspoonful. If you mix flour with liquid, you get a paste.

Is baking powder the same thing as corn starch?

It is gluten-free and is occasionally used as a flour, although its most common purpose is thickening. Corn starch can also be used to make laundry starch or to treat sunburn or rashes. Baking powder is a chemical leavener made of two acids, usually cream of tartar and sodium aluminum sulfate.
