How do you know if your baking powder is still good?

You can test the freshness of baking powder by simply adding two tablespoons of baking powder to a cup of hot water. If the water foams, the baking powder is still useable.

Glad you enjoyed it, Randall. It's one of my favorite songs.

Well, that shows you how much I know, I didn't even know it could go bad :)

See, I don't bake or cook, not a very domesticated mother. :) But I will keep this in mind.

Storm said...

I didn't know about this for years, either. :) I learned the hard way while in the middle of baking. Ugh.

What a great tip! I never knew that, and fresh baking powder is a must for cookies and cakes.

I really do need to do this, I read that it's usually only good for about 6 months. But my muffins still keep a-risin' so maybe I'm okay...
