How Much Does Baking Powder Cost?

Baking powder is one of the necessary ingredients to stock in a kitchen.  This is a raising agent that is commonly used in baking cakes and breads.  Types of baking powder include double-acting baking powders and single acting baking powders.  The mixture that contains a cup of flour will require at least 1- 1 ¼ teaspoons of baking powder.

Whenever you will store baking powder, make sure to always check the expiration date on the label to ensure the ingredients will work best.  The choice of baking powder depends on which brand a baker is used to as well as how it affects the quality of the baked bread or cakes.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. threenorns (Minden,  ON) paid $3 and said:

    it was a 1lb plastic container but i didn’t use it all before it died on me. looking back, i realized i never have managed to get through a container. usually, it’s about half before it’s pooched at a cost ranging from 3 to 5 a pound. therefore, the actual unit cost is doubled per pound since i’m throwing away half.

    now, i make my own single-acting baking powder. it’s 1 tsp cream of tartar ($10/lb) plus 2tsp baking soda ($1/lb) for a unit cost of $4 – but it’s 100% used, since i only make it up as i need it. bonus: i don’t lose shelf space in the fridge for a separate baking powder container.

    Was it worth it? No
