What comes to mind when you think of baking soda? Something you use when you bake. A while back I saw a commercial that suggested putting an opened box in the fridge to eliminate odors, and I did. It seemed to do the job pretty well. However, there are many more uses that maybe you hadn’t thought about. Some uses have amazed even the experts. Here are 7 new uses for simple powder.
Then pre-measure all your ingredients. You don’t want to incorrectly measure or leave an ingredient out while you are putting everything together. Your goal is to have a great tasting product.
Prepare the following ingredients: 1 cup of sliced fresh strawberries, 2 tablespoons of raw sliced almonds, 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt, 1 tablespoon of organic honey, one egg white, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and a food processor. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor wait until texture becomes smooth. Put the contents in a bowl or any container with lid. Apply the mixture on the face and wait for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse it off using lukewarm water. You can apply a regular facial moisturizer after the procedure.
Quick breads are varied and versatile; ranging from sweet to savory. Which ever you pick it’ll be sure to be a very easy baking bread.

They can be used in place of a desert or can be served for breakfast or brunch, and can make for some of the most quick baking recipes you’ll find.
Exfoliate skin. Keeping your skin clean is an important aspect of maintaining its health. Wash your face, and then apply a soft paste made of three parts baking soda and one part water.

Carefully read the entire recipe before baking. This may seem obvious but it will ensure you have enough time and all the necessary ingredients to ensure baking success.
When the temperature is too high you will get a cake that is overcooked on the outside and may not be completely cooked on the inside. The cake will be too dark. A dark cake doesn’t matter if it is frosted, at least as far a the look is concerned, but it can change the flavor of some high sugar cakes.
Baking time is very important. You do not want to under-bake. However, you also do not want to over-bake. I usually set my timer, to check whatever I’m baking, for 5 to 7 minutes before the time it should be done. Make sure it also looks done.
