Double acting baking powder really is "regular" baking powder. That's what you buy when you get baking powder in the supermarket

Yes. Double-acting baking powder will work for any recipe calling for regular, or single-acting baking powder.

To clarify, as Monita said, double-acting baking powder is "regular" baking powder. Single-acting baking powder exists, but when a recipe calls for baking powder it means double-acting. And even if a recipe does call for single-acting, you can sub in double-acting without worrying about it changing the recipe.
