Contents

## How much does 1 cup baking soda weigh?

The density of powdered baking soda (tapped in the cup) is around 1.2 g/ml (solid sodium bicarbonate is 2.2 g/ml). This means that 1 cup is 10 ounces and 1 pound is 1.6 cups.

## How many grams is a teaspoon of baking soda?

To test baking powder’s effectiveness: mix 1 teaspoon (5 grams) baking powder with 1/2 cup (120 ml) hot water and the mixture should bubble immediately.

## How do you scale baking powder?

To be on the safe side, use the following ratio: For every cup of flour in your recipe, use 1 to 1 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder or 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. If your recipe uses both baking powder and soda, then try to maintain the ratio of one to the other as best you can.
