Ammonia Soda for Baking

Where can I purchase ammonia soda for baking? I have a recipe that calls for ammonia soda, but I can't find it. A small jar was given to me with the cookie recipe, but now I can't find the ammonia soda. Can you help?

You can find it in German markets or order it online. I don't know what it's made of these days but long, long ago it was made by grinding reindeer antlers :-o The other thing you can do is simply use an equal amount of baking powder.

The exception to simply substituting baking powder is if the recipe requires a bit of crispiness for the item. In that case use 1/2 baking powder and 1/2 baking soda. For example: If your recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of ammonia soda then use 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.

Seems to me that its just another name for bicarbonate of soda. I can't imagine anything called "ammonia" would be used for cooking.

Wow, I never heard of ammonia soda for baking - also called baking ammonia! So I had to google it. I found this, which tells what it is:

http://www.food  ening-agent.aspx

and this, which gives an idea of where to find it: http://www.food  .com/Leaven.html

which says you can substitute 1tsp of it with 1tsp baking powder or 1tsp baking powder and 1tsp baking soda. These websites say the ammonia soda can leave an ammonia flavor in certain foods.

Hope this helps!

How funny - when I first read the question, there were no answers. By the time I got done writing my answer & hit 'enter', there were 4 other answers! LOL!

Use baking soda in its place or baking ammonia can be purchased at some drug and specialty food stores. It usually comes as a lump and needs to be ground to a powder before use. It should be kept in a well sealed container.

Look for it in German or Scandinavian markets, drug stores, baking supply stores, or a mail order catalog. Don't confuse this with ordinary household ammonia, which is poisonous. Varieties: It comes either as lumps or powder. If it isn't powdered, crush it into a very fine powder with a mortar and pestle or a rolling pin. Substitutes (for 1 teaspoon of baker's ammonia): 1 teaspoon baking powder (This is very similar, but might not yield as light and crisp a product.) OR 1 teaspoon baking powder plus 1 teaspoon baking soda

I googled & found this @ http://www.food  .com/Leaven.html

Let me know what you find... and please share your recipe?
