Baking Powder Substitute: a corn-free recipe

flour-powder-wheat-jarEverything seems to have corn in it these days. Even baking powder. This may be old news, but thankfully there’s an alternative that makes baked goods still possible.

A word of advice: make sure you use cream of tartar and not another alternative for this recipe. I like to make this in large batches because it saves time later. I saved an old glass spice jar and it worked perfectly for storing my corn-free baking powder!


  • 1/4 c arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 c baking soda
  • 1/2 c cream of tartar


Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Store in an airtight container in your pantry. 1 tsp substitute is equivalent to 1 tsp baking powder. Use in place of baking powder for recipes like Gluten-free Pancakes.
