When using baking soda in combination with acidic ingredients, such as buttermilk, molasses, cocoa or yogurt, the sodium bicarbonate releases carbon dioxide that causes the batter or dough to rise. In addition to carbon dioxide gas and bubbles, baking soda also yields a chewy texture that is essential to many baked goods—think of your favourite chocolate chip cookies. It’s also a great household cleanser and eliminates odours.
Out of baking powder? You can use baking soda under certain conditions. Make sure your recipe contains an acidic ingredient—or add it! Quick rule of thumb: to properly activate 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, you’ll need 1 cup of buttermilk or yogurt, or 1 teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice.
