Baking is not my forte but I’m pretty good at making my own pancakes. I used to rely on a recipe from a cookbook but I’ve now graduated to the big leagues and I can manage to make pancakes from scratch AND without a physical recipe. I figured out the proportions and the ingredients that work for my family and I’m even able to jazz them up when I want to.

Of course, I’m also humble enough to realize that I need decent ingredients to work with. After all, I can’t make pancakes out of nothing. I use baking powder in my pancakes and I have an existing brand that I prefer. Well, that went out the window when I went to my local health food store and it wasn’t available!

End result: I end up with a bag of Purest Baking Powder. I’ve never ever seen Purest Baking Powder before but the staff told me it was a good product, I read the ingredients and decided to take it home.

Purest Baking Powder anyone?

Product Review: Purest Baking Powder at work

thingsthatwedo.com - purest baking powderAt the time of this post, I’ve used Purest Baking Powder to make a few batches of pancakes and so far, so good. Here is the usual recipe I use for my pancakes:

2 cups flour (sometimes a mix of organic 1 ½ cup all purpose flour, with a blend of ½ cup of whole wheat flour with some ground almonds)
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk (usually organic milk but I’ve used almond milk before too)
1 egg
1 teaspoon of sugar (sometimes I skip it, sometimes I use brown sugar)
1 teaspoon of butter melted (give or take)

The Purest Baking Powder, of course, went into my dry mix. When the wet and dry are ready, I add the wet to the dry, give a stir, and the batter is ready.

Take a look at the pancakes I made with Purest Baking Powder. They look pretty good, right? They taste much like my usual pancakes which is a good thing because it means the Purest Baking Powder hasn’t altered the flavour in any way. My daughter certainly liked the pancakes and happily enjoyed her fair share.


Verdict:

Pthingsthatwedo.com - purest baking powderurest Baking Powder was a great addition to my pancake routine. It gave my pancakes the height and lift that I’m used to. Purest Baking Powder doesn’t add any funky flavours to the pancakes and quite honestly, I feel like I’ve been using it forever!
