Soda or Powder?
By: Makayla Forsberg
Baking powder is baking soda already mixed with an acid. Baking powder on its own is used in baked goods that DO not already contain an acid. Baking powder and baking soda are both leaveners, but they are chemically different.

2. Get ingredients.
3. Make the recipe and substitute baking powder/baking soda instead of using the one the recipe calls for.
4. Determine the height, color, taste, and texture of the baked good.
5. Do this again, but bake the recipe correctly.
6. Repeat step 4.
My hypothesis was it is possible to substitute baking soda and baking powder. The results indicate that this hypothesis should be considered true. Based on the results of this experiment, if you didn't have baking soda, baking powder would work just fine. If I were to conduct this science fair project again I would test different characteristics of the cookie to test.
