Print Friendly Recipe
- An acidic ingredient, such as:
- white vinegar
- lemon juice
- possibly buttermilk
- Cream of Tartar is usually added to recipes which require an acid to react with baking soda.
- Adding an acid to baking soda is essential to achieve maximum leavening action from the baking soda.
- Using an equivalent amount of acid in your recipe in place of the cream of tartar should work just fine.
- For example, if your recipe calls for a tsp of cream of tartar, use one tsp vinegar or lemon juice as a substitute.
- Because cream of tartar is usually used in small amounts, the additional liquid added by using vinegar or lemon juice should not affect your recipe's integrity.
- Good luck!!
