If you run out of baking powder when you need some, use 2 level teaspoons cream of tartar to one teaspoon baking soda. This is equal to 4 teaspoons of tartrate baking powder, the kind you usually have in the kitchen.

I am making a blackberry cobbler. I am out of baking powder. Am I able to substitute anything? I do have a huge bag of Krusteaz pancake mix, if I add some sugar, butter, and an egg, will it come out OK?

I skip the baking powder in a lot of recipes and it turns out fine.

I use 1/4 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp cream of tarter to substitute baking powder when I run out. This amount equals 1 tsp of baking powder.
In answer to your question about the Krusteaz: you probably can add some sugar and a little butter along with the liquid recommended. However, it will simply be an experiment on your part and I personally can't answer how much for you. This is how new recipes are formed and it just may become your new favorite! Good Luck!

Blackberry cobbler is so easy to make and you can use fresh or frozen blackberries.

Step 1
Baking powder substitutes "recipes" will always mean you have to have baking soda but I have found that many people do not have either one so what can you use?

Step 2
If you do not have the baking power or the baking soda then it would be a better idea to just use self rising flour as neither of these are required for a cobbler.

Step 3
You mentioned that you had a large bag of Krusteaz pancake mix so it seems you were thinking about using this for you cobbler? This makes a very good cobbler so be sure to try it next time.

Krusteaz does not give a recipe for making cobbler with their pancake mix probably because they make a great cobbler mix that they want you to buy. Here is a universal cobbler recipe using pancake mix (almost all brands of pancake mixes contain the same ingredients) that I think you would like. https://www.rea  ackberry-cobbler

Here is an excellent recipe if you want to try making your cobbler with self-rising flour.
