cooking substitutes


Question by  peppepe (13)

Is there a substitute for yeast when cooking?

I'm thinking about trying baking soda as an alternative to yeast, but I don't know if it will work.

Changing a recipe to use an alternative to yeast is very complicated. It's much easier to search out a recipe that uses baking soda or powder to begin with.

In place of yeast, you can add baking soda and lemon juice, in equal parts and totaling the amount of yeast needed, as your final ingredients. It is important that you add these ingredients last to ensure you get the necessary reaction. Also, since you are not using yeast, there is no need to wait for the dough to rise.

Baking soda will make bread rise if you use it with buttermilk. Baking soda/buttermilk do well in simple breads like buttermilk biscuits.If you don't have buttermilk you can use milk and vinegar- 1 teaspoon of vinegar to 2 cups of milk.
