  1. Great tip, thanks. I bake all the time and I have never checked my baking powder….

  2. Wow, I didn't know that! I just posted my g-ma's pancake recipe on my blog, hope you don't mind if I pass on your tip!(I will totally give you credit *wink*)

  3. Our local grocery store started carrying really small cans of baking powder. At first I was irritated, then I realized that would help it stay fresh if I went through it faster.

  4. Ahh good to know! Love your site design!

  5. I'm gonna check mine. Hubby's complaining that his pancakes are going flat…thanks!
