One of the things that I learned in a class I was taking was that if a recipe contained baking soda, baking powder and salt that these were good for making batter and refrigerating it because the leaveners would react once mixed but then again once it hit the oven. I guess because they would react twice they make good recipes for making ahead of time and using as you need it.

So my question to you all is, can anyone recommend a good recipe (or two) that contain all three ingredients? I have an excellent chocolate cake but am looking for others.

Baking soda only reacts once. Once it's shot it's shot. If you look on your BP container it should say something like double acting. The first reaction is with moisture then the second is with heat. Salt isn't a leavener at all. salt tends to extract, and enhance the flavors an item would already have.

maybe i should have paid more attention in class??!! icon_smile.gif

i was thinking for some reason that if all 3 of those ingredients were present in a recipe that those would be the best recipes for making ahead of time and then refrigerating the remainder of the batter for use at a later time.
