What kind of soda? Do they mean baking soda?

8 days ago

Ovens cook differently. When the time is up and the cake should be done, insert a knife in the center of the cake. It should come out clean and not gooey with cake batter still on it. If it does cook ten min more and check and repeat, as necessary until the knife inserted comes out clean. Yes I assume the soda is baking soda and not club soda, but that was a good question.
