For future info, baking powder can be replicated using 2 parts bicarb to 1 part cream of tartar

SR on its own will be OK.

If you've got bicarb and cream of tartar you can make your own.

Thanks for quick responses. Recipe already says SR flour AND baking powder. So off to the shop for some baking powder I think. Thanks again!

If you don't use baking powder your cake won't rise and will be awful. If you have self raising flour use that instead ( it already has the baking powder in it). grin

Baking powder is the raising agent, so you run the risk of it being a sponge pancake.

No - if a recipe says baking powder then you need it. Unless the recipe specifies plain flour + bp and you have self raising.

Am making sponge cake (Delia's all-in-one!) and have just realised I've run out of baking powder...can I miss it out? (am fairly useless baker so no idea)
