But I have this KitchenAid, and there's yom tov, and, well.
I made honey cake. I made this recipe for honey cake. If the name looks familiar, that's because that's my mother-in-law.
I made the doubled recipe. And I had mixed the wet ingredients (I did the coffee version) and was mixing the dry ones when I realized - horrors - that I had baking powder, but not baking soda. And when I checked to see how to subsitute for baking soda, I was advised to, well, get some. That the balancing act required to substitute baking powder for baking soda was more effort than just getting a box.
So. I did. I left the mixer full of wet stuff and ran to a store a long block away and bought baking soda (and sponges, which we needed.)
How much? One tsp. *Sigh*.
Four loaves. Baking now. We shall see. (If they don't come out well, I have time to buy more.)
