The Simple Swap To Make Banana Bread Without Baking Soda
By Asia McLain
If you ever want to make banana bread but are missing baking soda, you can easily replace it with baking powder. All you need to do is adjust the measurements.
Using baking soda and baking powder can yield similar results, but they are different in their mixtures. It is not a one-for-one swap, which can make a difference in your dish.
According to Arm & Hammer, "triple the amount of baking powder for the amount of baking soda." Essentially, 1 teaspoon of baking soda means 3 teaspoons of baking powder.
If you happen to be out of both items, other substitutes include club soda, baker's ammonia, potassium bicarbonate, whipped egg whites, and self-rising flour.
