Mrs. W. R. Babb

By this date, most people would have used commercial baking ponder, which was readily available. The flour in this mixture would make it thicken, as well as raise, a mixture. The staying power of this or any other baking powder is dependent on how well moisture is excluded from the powder.

Sift all together six times; then put in cans and keep air tight. This is a good baking powder and will keep a long time.
