So, what is raising powder?

Baking powder, also known as raising powder, is a dry chemical leavening agent that is commonly used in baking to make cakes, biscuits, and other baked goods rise. It is a mixture of sodium bicarbonate, an alkaline compound, and an acid, usually cream of tartar, that produces carbon dioxide gas when mixed with moisture. This gas creates air pockets in the batter or dough, causing it to expand and rise during baking. Raising powder can also contain cornstarch, which helps to absorb any excess moisture and prevent clumping. Its unique chemical composition and properties make it a staple ingredient in many baked goods recipes.
