Baking Powder -- Make Your Own
Make your own single-actingbaking powder:
for 1 teaspoon of baking powder,
mix 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
and 1/4 teaspoon cornstarch.
This can be scaled up or down,proportionally. Or you can make a little jar of it, not too much, and use it asneeded. If you do make your own baking powder, be sure to pop whatever you’remaking right in the oven after it’s mixed as it’ll start to react once you’veadded the liquid to your muffin or quick bread recipe.
Baking powder can lose its oomph and doesn’t last forever. Toprevent that, buy the smallest container you can find and store it with the capfirmly in place in a cool, dry place…but not the refrigerator, whose air is toomoist. Although I’m always looking for ways to cut down on excess packaging, Ifind it best not to buy baking powder that’s sold in bulk, as it sometimes isat health food stores, since it loses its vigor quickly when exposed tohumidity in the air.
When in doubt if your baking powder is still good, add ateaspoonful to a half cup of boiling water. If it boils vigorously, the bakingpowder is still good. If nothing happens, chuck it.
Debbie’s Moist Chocolate CupcakesWith Vanilla Frosting
· 2 cups sugar
· 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
· 1 cup Cocoa
· 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
· 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
· 1 teaspoon salt
· 2 eggs
· 1 cup milk
· 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
· 3 tablespoons butter softened
· 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
· 1 cup HOT tap water
· 1 1/2 Tablespoons instant coffee
1- Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cupcake tins with paper liner
3- togethersugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.
4- Dissolveinstant coffee in milk.
5- Add eggs,milk, oil and vanilla to dry mixture and beat on medium speed for about 2minutes. Stir in boiling water – DON’T PANIC! Your batter will be very thin,about the constancy of melted ice cream.The first time I made this, I panickeda little bit at this point, but the hot water is what makes these so supermoist.
6- Theeasiest way to measure this is by pouring all of your batter into a largeliquid measuring cup, or bowl, with spout. Then you can very easily pour itinto cupcake tin. Fill each cupcake about halfway full.
7- Bake 25to 30 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.Remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
· 2 Sticks Softened, unsalted butter
· 4 cups powdered sugar
· 2 teaspoons vanilla (or more to taste)
· 1-2 teaspoons water (optional)
This can be made in either a mixer or by hand. I prefer a thickerfrosting, so I do it by hand to prevent too much air for being added.
1. Placeyour butter in a bowl and mix for a minute to break up stick and get itworkable.
2. Addpowdered sugar a little at a time, completely incorporating into the butter.
3. Addvanilla. Mix for 2-3 minutes. If you frosting is too thick, add 1-2 teaspoonsof water to thin.
4. Spread oncupcakes and enjoy!!
