Delia's Honey Spice Cake
ICED HONEY AND SPICE CAKE (Delia Cakes & Delia Complete Cookery Course) - trouble dissolving the bicarbonate of soda in cold water.
I have failed twice to dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in cold water as per this recipe. Eventually (after 5 mins) I gave up stirring, stirring, stirring and added the mixture (still with undissolved powder in it) to the cake mix. As a result the cake has not risen well, which is to be expected.
Does anyone know how to dissolve bicarbonate of soda in cold water?
Hot water is easier to dissolve the bicarb but results in a different chemical reaction. Help!!!!
