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.

Also called:

Agente lievitante (Italian)

    Hmmm... it's barely been six weeks since Christmas? Who on earth wants Plum Pudding again so soon? Maybe the day is for those who didn't get any at Christmas, so they don't have to wait the rest of the year for their next chance.
