This Is What Happens When You Add Baking Powder And Baking Soda To Your Cake

There are a lot of ingredients that you can use to cook whatever you want. Some products can be confusing sometimes. If you have been wondering what the difference between Baking Powder and Baking Soda is, then worry no more.

In this article, I will share with you the difference between the two Ingredients and what happens to your cake when you use Baking Powder and Baking Soda together.

Baking Powder and Baking Soda have always confused a lot of people when it comes to knowing the difference between the two ingredients. The ingredients are used in preparing different snacks and meals.

The difference between the two is very much apart. Baking Soda is considered to be over 2times stronger than Baking Powder. Baking Soda Is like a (BASE) that needs an (ACID) in other to function well, so when baking soda which acts as the (BASE) is added, you will need buttermilk, yogurt lemon juice, Vinegar, Brown Sugar which acts as the ( ACID).

Baking Powder on the other hand already contains Baking Soda. Most Baking Powder has a double-acting capacity, leavening can occur in two ways, the first occurs when baking powder gets wet, while the second one occurs when the baking powder is exposed to heat.

Some snacks require only baking soda, while some require only baking powder. Cake, on the other hand, requires both because of the cake batter. The carbon dioxide created by either baking soda and baking powder is not enough to leaven the volume of the batter in the cake, so both are required to give your cake a good lift.
