Homemade Baking Powder {Corn Free} | Homemade Dutch Apple PieCorn is in just about everything these days.  I didn’t realize just how much food contains corn until my son was diagnosed with a corn allergy.

One thing I quickly realized is that there is corn in most baking powders. For someone that likes to bake that was a problem.

But I’ve been baking powder free before while doing the GAPS diet. Often the baking powder really isn’t necessary. But for baked goods that really need help with rise there is a solution – make your own!

This is a simple substitute for baking powder. I have two versions depending on whether or not you soak your baked good. Soaking gives natural rise, so you don’t need as much.

Cream of tartar works quite well for giving rise. I find it works best if you add it in the last step of your baking since it starts working immediately.

Cream of tartar comes from grapes. So if you have a grape allergy this is not for you (my son used to be allergic to grapes too!).  If that is the case you can also try using beaten egg whites.

If you enjoy baking but can’t have corn here is a simple baking powder replacement.

For use in soaked baked goods
  1. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  2. 1 tsp. cream of tartar
For use in unsoaked baked goods
  1. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  2. 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  1. Combine the baking soda and cream of tartar.
  2. Add it to the batter and mix just before baking as the rising action will begin as soon as it gets wet.
  1. It is best to mix this fresh every time you bake instead of mixing a bunch in advance. It doesn't stay fresh pre-mixed.
  2. Soaking grains creates natural rise, so not as much rising agent is needed.
