2 tsp baking powder

1 cup plain flour

How to make it

Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl before using, to make sure the baking powder is thoroughly distributed (or you can put both ingredients into a bowl and whisk them together). Make sure that your baking powder has not passed its “use by” or “best before” date as baking powder also has a finite life and if it is old you may find that your cakes don’t rise.
