On this episode, we discuss baking soda and baking powder which are essentially the same thing. It’s in many cultural dishes in Jamaica but this item can be pretty abrasive to the digestive system. Cream of Tartar may be the cleanest baking powder/soda substitute. Cream of tartar is the powdered form of tartaric acid. It’s a byproduct of winemaking and also naturally found in plants.
A substitute, however, is only needed because of the need for quick leavening of the yeast. It’s much healthier to ferment so you have a sourdough with healthy bacteria present, which I’m sure would change the flavor of something like bulla cake, which is a Jamaican pastry. With all the ingredients in bulla, I cannot call it healthy by any standard to be honest. It’s best to let it go.
I’ve had to let go of some foods but it’s ok because I eat well. Meals that have cultural relevancy are more appealing for folks especially during the transition period to eating more plant-based and less animal product but then you graduate to a place where the meals you are eating are so good that you don’t need those old foods. At this point for me, it means not partaking in a bulla cake with family members who are still eating those foods.
Instead, you can make and bring raw vegan apple pie to your next family gathering and share it with your family.
