Baking Powder as a Substitute

Lemon Juice or Vinegar

As a substitute for cream of tartar, other acidic ingredients work well. Lemon juice and vinegar are the best acidic substitutes for cream of tartar. If using lemon juice or vinegar to substitute cream of tartar for egg whites, you'll use an equal amount of lemon juice or vinegar as called for in cream of tartar. This is usually â?? tsp per egg white prepared.

When using lemon juice or vinegar for a substitute for cream of tartar in baking, the increase in fluid may cause you to adjust the fluids in your recipe. In addition, you need to adjust the level of the substitute you use. For every ½ tsp of cream of tartar called for in the recipe, substitute it with 1½ tsp of lemon juice or vinegar. Some bakers, however, feel that when lemon juice or vinegar is used in this manner, it changes the flavor and texture of the end product.
