Suppose I mix a traditional layer cake batter with baking powder and put it
in the fridge. How long can I keep it in the fridge before bringing it to
room temp and baking it without the taste being diminished? 12 hours? 24
hours?  How about 48 hours? thanks in advance.

I'm thinking not long at all- the baking powder will dissapate once
it's mixed with liquid. How  about mixing all your dry ingredients
together ahead of time, and adding wet ones right before baking?

If you are using a good double acting baking powder you can keep the
batter  in the baking pan at temperatures around 5 deg C for a few
days to a week and then  you bake it directly in the hot oven.

Really? I've never done that, so I have no experience.

Thanks Chembake. It worked very well. I buy McCormack's double action baking
powder at Costco. A 28oz contaner costs about $3.00US.  Plus it doesn't show
any aluminium on the label. And, as I said, it did the job. Thanks.
