Now that seems a bit weird. You need about 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder per 8 oz of flour for fairy cakes. Perhaps there's another use for it on a ship?  :-\

That seemed a lot of baking powder to me too...

Maybe for cleaning?

They loved their popping candy on the Albatross and by late 1912 were on the way to perfecting popping cabbage.

Baking powder is used to make popping candy pop. 

More traditional Thanksgiving stores arrive the next day.  Possibly they are hosting a celebration.
