Cooking Tip: Yeast Substitution

I was baking and was sure I had yeast but none, I didn't. I was already too far into it to go back so I was very happy when I found a substitute and that it worked
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 2 minutes

Baking soda
Lemon juice


Add all ingredients according to the recipe

Then, add in equal parts baking soda and lemon juice to equal the amount of yeast called for in the recipe


  1. Are you serious?! I have never used yeast. It's one of my fears for some reason. Irrational, I know. I had determined that I would try to conquer that fear this year. Now you are telling me that I may not have to do that. I am completely comfortable with baking soda and lemon juice. *happy dance*

    So what did you bake with it?!

  2. well the first thing that i have tried is a rhubarb pastry square. it turned out great (i'll be posting soon about it) but i haven't tried breads..i'll post about that when i do!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! I read each and everyone of them!
