    I’m not big on baking so I apologize in advance if my questions are way too ignorant, but here is goes …….

    I found this old Czech cook book (about mid 70’s) and want to try some of the recipes, but am confused about baking powder measurements.

    First of all I want to make sure “prasek do peciva” is baking powder. It is .. right? And if not, then what is it? :idea:

    And my second question. Many of the recipes call for various portions of a pack of baking powder, as in: “….. pridejte pul sacku prasku do peciva …” Just how big is the bag? :eek:

    Thank you for your time :)

    Another example:

    Dr. Oetker - Kypřící prášek do pečiva 12g
    1,40 Kč

    You are awesome! Thank you so very much Troll.

    So technically adding “… half a pack …” would be either 6g. or 6.5g.
    Ok, so basically being perfectly “exact” is not overly crucial when it comes to baking powder? Am I understanding it correctly? I'll go with 6.5g when I try it :lol:

    And again … thank you so very much for taking the time to answer :)
