    Hi Teresa, have you had any success with keeping this? I've been
    told that homemade baking powder loses it strength in a very short
    time. Also been told you need to use twice as much as what the
    recipe would call for. Do you know if there is any truth to either
    of those comments? I wouldn't mind mixing up a cup of it but don't
    want to waste the ingredients if they aren't going to last. Thanks,
    Poppy

    I've been
    told that homemade baking powder loses it strength in a very short
    time. > I have not had any problems with it losing it's strength but I use mine
    allot. I do keep mine in the fridge.And use it within a month.

    Also been told you need to use twice as much as what the
    recipe would call for>>>.
    I use just what my recipe calls for and see no change.
    Lots of TLC to you,

    Q.=curious to know the advantage of making your own baking powder?????
    A.=I don't think there is any advantage at all
    but surely I'm not the only one that has gone to
    bake something and found I'm out of baking powder
    and I knew there was a substitute. Blessings, Pat

    Hi, I've seen 2 recipes here: one that contains cornstarch and one
    that does not. Does anyone know what the cornstarch addition does,
    or what the difference is if you leave it out?

    Also, I want to know the same thing as Poppy about if you have to
    adjust the recipe to use homemade.

    I wouldn't have the storage issue, I don't think, because I would
    seal it with my foodsaver.

    Thanks!
    Sheryl

    I do not really know what it means but I know that they call homemade baking powder single acting and the store bought is double acting(according to the label.)
