    Cream of Tartar Substitute - The answer is, there is not a good substitution cream of tartar. If cream of tartar is used along with baking soda in a cake or cookie recipe, omit both and use baking powder instead. If the recipe calls for baking soda and cream of tarter, I would just use baking powder.


    Normally, when cream of tartar is used in a cookie, it is used together with baking soda. The two of them combined work like double-acting baking powder. When substituting for cream of tartar, you must also substitute for the baking soda. If your recipe calls for baking soda and cream of tarter, I would just use baking powder.


    One teaspoon baking powder is equivalent to 1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 5/8 teaspoon cream of tartar. If there is additional baking soda that does not fit into the equation, simply add it to the batter.
