This review is from: The Illustrated Kitchen Bible (Hardcover)
I love the wide variety of recipes in this book and most importantly the sections on food preparation techniques.The only downside is after making about 6-7 recipes from this book I've noticed some bland recipes and a few small printing errors. For example, the german apple cake didn't call for baking powder but in step 3 it states, "Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt." The cake was also too salty. Because I'm still learning to cook I still recommend it because the instructions, illustrations, and new recipes were really helpful for a beginner.

How much baking powder and salt is correct?

I wouldn't know about the baking powder because it didn't list the amount in the ingredients. I did some research on other recipes and guessed a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder would be alright. The ingredients called for 1 1/4 tsp salt and I wouldn't recommend more than 1 teaspoon or pinch of salt because my results tasted salty.
