You need baking soda and cream of tartar (or another acid)2 part cream of tartar to one of baking soda

Well I have flour in my flour container but cant remember if it was self raising or plain! lol

recipe on back of tin says, to make 1 tsp baking powder:
- one third tsp baking soda
- one half tsp cream of tartar
- one eighth tsp salt.
We tried this and found it rose more than the standard commercial baking powder - perhaps because it is fresher.
But it was a good substitute when we ran out of bp.

Do, and let us know your experience of it.
