  2. Add eggs and vanilla and beat till well blended.

  8. Thanks for the recipe.
    I have just made a double batch and ate 2 while still hot...Mmm delicious.
    I didn't know what baking soda was... I have a box of Arm & Hammer American baking soda, but the box only talks about how good it is for cleaning...so I left it out...They were still delicious.
    Thanks again,

    1. Hi Sugar Pie, this is something I found on the Joy of Baking page that answers your question about baking soda. It's interesting how all over the world there are slight differences to the way we bake and the products that are available to us.

      Both baking powder and baking soda are chemical leavening agents that cause batters to rise when baked. The leavener enlarges the bubbles which are already present in the batter produced through creaming of ingredients. When a recipe contains baking powder and baking soda, the baking powder does most of the leavening. The baking soda is added to neutralize the acids in the recipe plus to add tenderness and some leavening.
      When using baking powder or baking soda in a recipe, make sure to sift or whisk with the other dry ingredients before adding to the batter to ensure uniformity. Otherwise the baked good can have large holes.

    2. Arm & Hammer is the most common baking soda we have here in America and is safe to use in baking - it's baking soda but also good for cleaning :)
