Cream of Tartar Question

Kagey | Nov 15, 2006 06:30 PM

I'm hoping you baking hounds can help. I have a recipe for an apple cake that calls for 200g sugar, 2 eggs, 350g flour, 1.5 t of baking soda, .5 t cream of tartar, 450g apples, and .5 t salt. That's not all the ingredients, but you get the idea...

So I can't find cream of tartar. Do you know exactly what it's for? Is there some adjustment/substitution I could make?

I'd be grateful for your insight!
