Hi, this was the first cake I ever baked and it was ultimate. Everybody loved it. Thanks to the great recipe. I have a small doubt. When I made it for the 1st time, I used baking powder instead of baking soda and the cake was spongy and full. The next time I used Baking soda and Baking powder as mentioned in the recipe, the cake fully rose and while cooling it flattened out. Can you suggest any tips for the same Thanks.

Hi Sheena, I found this explanation online. hope this helps. Baking soda is pure sodium bicarbonate. When baking soda is combined with moisture and an acidic ingredient e.g., yogurt, chocolate, buttermilk, honey, the resulting chemical reaction produces bubbles of carbon dioxide that expand under oven temperatures, causing baked goods to rise. The reaction begins immediately upon mixing the ingredients, so you need to bake recipes which call for baking soda immediately, or else they will fall flat! Baking powder contains sodium bicarbonate, but it includes the acidifying agent already cream of tartar , and also a drying agent usually starch . Baking powder is available as single-acting baking powder and as double-acting baking powder. Single-acting powders are activated by moisture, so you must bake recipes which include this product immediately after mixing.

Sorry to sound like a stupid, but am extremely stupid in this area and now have been asked to bake a cake by my hubby :( My doubt is, what exactly is the difference between a baking powder and a baking soda? i thought they were one and the same.Please help!!!

Hi Smita! u r absolutely right. the more u beat the batter the fluffier the cake would turn out to be. this is because more air enters into the batter making the cake fluffier. so do beat the batter as much as u can. i usually give this job of beating the batter to my husband ;)
