Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150Here is an easy recipe to be able to make baking powder. It is just three simple ingredients and taste so much better than the store bought. Personally I think that it works better as well.

The reason that I have started making my own baking powder is due to allergies. This recipe makes sure that the food products that I am sensitive to are not used in my diet. I will probably keep using this recipe even if they were to remove what I am sensitive to out of the store brand baking powders. This will also be a great recipe for those that are highly sensitive to corn products. Even if the recipe and ingredients below are unusable by them, they will be able to to use the recipe, just make sure that the ingredients are safe for them to use.

I’ve been experimenting with an old recipe from the Northumberland region of England. They were called Singin’ Hinnies, because when one would cook them on a griddle, they would hiss or “sing”. Now, I bake these instead of cooking them on griddle, and have found many variations on the Hinnies, and this is a fine, savoury addition.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 tbsp lard
2 tbsp butter
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried chives
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
milk or sour cream

Mix all ingredients well except for the milk or sour cream. Add these gradually until your have a moistened dough. Turn out dough on rolling or large cutting board. Roll out dough to 1/2 to 1 inch in thickness. Cut with 2 inch diameter biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter in flour between each cut to stop the dough from sticking. Place each scone about 1 inch apart from the other. Bake 30-35 minutes. Serve hot with butter. Makes 12 scones
