I’ve been searching high and low for a foundational cake recipe that includes soda pop as an ingredient for an experiment I want to try for this month’s Iron Cupcake challenge. I haven’t had any luck. Most of the recipes use box cake mixes *gasp*. Or they include ingredients like apple cider vinegar or sour cream, which I don’t think fit in the cake aesthetic I’m looking for. I know a lot of people like sour cream, but whenever I’ve made a cake with it, it tends to sit like a rock in my stomach after eating.
Anyone have any ideas on how I could add soda pop as an ingredient to let’s say, a basic white or yellow cake recipe? I don’t have Rose’s Cake Bible… yet. I’m going to try and get it this week. What I do have right now is Tish Boyle’s Cake Book. I’m a big fan of her white cake recipe, but I don’t know how that compares with Rose’s. I’m thinking maybe switch out some of the milk for soda? What should I do?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
