Is it possible to make scone, pancake, muffin or some other batter the day before, store in the fridge and bake off later? Does it affect the leavening?

If you can do this, how many does would it hold in the refrigerator?


Thanks guys,

Henry

No. With all of those items, you are talking about baking powder. "Double" baking powder might work a little differently, but as far as other baking powders are concerned, the're at their peak at the moment dry combines with wet, and then it's all downhill from there.

Prep your dry and wet ingredients separately the day before and then combine them just before you're ready to bake.

You can prep and chill the batter for all items you mentioned if using double action powder. Freezing is also possible with little problem.
We keep batters at the ready in the cooler and freezer, you never know when you will get the call for a dozen muffins!
