  1. I tried the recipe and the cake was super moist and totally amazing 😃

    1. Thats awesome Ju! Happy that you tried and liked our recipe, cheers! 😉

    2. Hi can i add baking powder instead of baking soda ?

      1. Hi there, Baking soda is different to baking powder. The baking soda used in this recipe creates a chemical reaction that help make the cake rise. Unfortunately, baking powder does not have the same effect. Hope this was helpful!

      2. The short answer is yes! This recipe will still work using Baking powder. However, it is good to know that Baking powder and Baking powder are not exactly the same ingredients and have different chemical reactions when mixed to other ingredients.
