Baking Powder (Corn & Gluten Free)

Did you know baking powder contains corn starch? I didn’t, and it wasn’t until recently I actually even read the ingredients and realised. Then, it all made sense why after I eat some baked goods that I make I still get sick. This disease is amazing. You learn to read every label! However, no matter how much you sometimes just forget, or in my instance as I’m also intolerant to dairy and corn, read the label and see the gluten free label and use it without reading the ingredients. Argh! We have all been there.

Anyway, I have been on a mission to find a corn starch free baking powder, and as I have yet been unsuccessful I have made my own blend. I have been testing it in my recipes, and tweaked it a few times, but I’m rather happy with the outcome.

So, here is my gluten and corn free baking powder mix….who knew baking powder was so easy to make.
