I was just hoping someone could tell me where i can find Aluminium Free Baking Powder in Australia, i recognise Rumford fits this profile, but can’t find it here!
Also when i use self raising flour to make scones, as opposed to plain flour and baking powder, the resulting scones are more tender, and i’m using the standard substitution of 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder + .25 teaspoons of salt per cup of all purpose flour. The reason i do this is because i know too much leavening can cause cakes to fall, and i also like to microwave my plain flour before using it to bake cakes, hence i don’t buy self-raising flour. The other thing that perplexes me is that my self raising flour and baking powder seem to contain the same raising agents [Sodium Bicarbonate (500), Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (450)] yet when i use the self raising there is no metallic aftertaste, but when i use the BP there is…
Thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated!
