Cake tropic


1 hour 20 min


8 portions



You may have noticed that some baking recipes use baking soda and baking powder simultaneously. These two components act at different speeds: soda acts immediately at the beginning of the baking process, and baking powder afterward.


In the recipe for the Tropic cake, there is lemon juice and fruit puree, so baking soda will work better here and fluff up the batter faster. You do not need to extinguish the soda. Otherwise, you will release all the bubbles from the reaction with the acid into the air. Acid is always present in the batter, and this reaction will occur due to the dairy products in it.
