Powder recipes have been around for centuries, with early versions appearing in cookbooks as early as the 16th century. The earliest known recipe for a powder was for a mixture of ground almonds, pistachios and sugar, which was used to sprinkle on food.
Powder recipes became more popular in the 18th century, when they were used to make all sorts of novelty foods, such as scented powders, which were used to sprinkle on clothes or furniture, and edible powders, which were used to decorate cakes and biscuits.
Powder recipes continued to be popular in the 19th and 20th centuries, when they were used to make everything from baby powder to face powder. Today, powder recipes are still used to make all sorts of products, from cosmetics to food.
