I have a recipe from the cake channel that doesn't call for any baking soda or powder. I thought it strange but made it anyway. of course it didn't rise so how much of which or both should I add? or is this supposed to be like this? (don't think so) the recipe follows
9 oz chopped butter
7 oz white choc
2 c sugar
1/3 c grand marnier
1 3/4 c flour
I'd like to make it for my birthday on thursday so help soon please!
Honestly...i don't know for certain, but I think you should try baking powder. There doesn't seem to be any acid in the ingredients and that's usually a sure sign that soda would be necessary as the baking soda reacts with the acidity in a recipe.
As far as how much, that's really going to be just trial and error. I would start with 2 t and go from there (but again...that's just a guess).
I would go with the 2 tsp. baking powder as well. It looks like it could use about 1/2 tsp. of salt and some vanilla too.
