Leaveners



Ingredients that cause a dough or batter to rise and expand by creating gas bubbles in it.

Yeast is a natural leavener; baking powder is a chemical leavener.

Unleavened baked goods don't have the rising happening in them, and therefore are denser and heavier.

Please share this information with your friends. They may love it.
