Baking Soda Substitutes

Baking soda is a very important ingredient in many recipes. It helps our cakes, cookies, and breads rise, making them fluffy and yummy. But what happens if you run out of baking soda? Don't worry! There are some cool Baking Soda Substitutes that you can use.


Baking powder can be a substitute for baking soda, but you'll need to use more of it. For every 1 teaspoon of baking soda, use 3 teaspoons of baking powder.


If your recipe needs baking soda and you have self-rising flour, you can use it. But remember, you'll also need to skip any salt or baking powder that the recipe asks for.


Club soda has carbonation (tiny gas bubbles) that can make pancakes and some other recipes light and fluffy. Just replace the liquid in your recipe with club soda for a baking sode substitution.


Replace an equal amount of all-purpose flour and baking soda in the recipe with an equal amount of self-rising flour. Adjust based on your specific recipe’s requirements.


Vinegar and lemon juice are both acids. When they meet baking soda, they create a bubbly reaction. This can help your food rise! If you're using vinegar or lemon juice as a substitute, mix it with the baking soda first.
