  • Baking soda
  • Lemon juice


  • To substitute the yeast called for in a recipe, take the amount called for and add in equal parts baking soda and lemon juice (eg. 1 Tbsp of yeast will equal 1/2 Tbsp of baking soda and 1/2 Tbsp of lemon juice).
  • Omit the rise time in the your recipe when using this yeast substitute for the dough does not need time to rise.
  • Make sure the yeast substitute is the last ingredient you add in order for the reaction to properly work.
  • Bake recipe as directed.
