I was going to make a focaccia-like dish, but found that I don't have any yeast. Can I substitute it with baking powder? How?

  • So buy yeast. Another formula, would create something else. – Optionparty Apr 6 '13 at 2:10

Short answer: no, you cannot without radically changing the recipe until it is something completely different.

  • Thanks, I guess I'll have to make a flatbread-type of thing instead. – Joni Mar 3 '13 at 12:20
  • I have two spare jars of yeast to prevent this problem :-) You could try a soda bread if you have buttermilk and baking soda around.... – SAJ14SAJ Mar 3 '13 at 12:21
