SD thank you.

I have baking powder - re "something like" - how sure are you on the quantities ?

Thank you so much

At the risk of being dippy - level or heaped teaspoons ?

I don't actually know. I think I usually use slightly heaped ones, assuming that too much is better than too little!

Ok - I'll try slightly heaped - thanks again
