I had never heard of a cake with soda pop, until I saw this recipe, and as she said that it was a perfect sponge cake, of course I would test, and I also love Sprite. The cake is super easy to make, and a amazing thing is that it doesn’t has baking powder. When I was making the cake I went to get the baking powder and I saw that the recipe didn’t ask for it, so I ran to the Internet to see if I had copied the recipe right (because I often don’t copy it right…hehe) and I saw that it was right. So I assumed that maybe the soda helps the cake to grow, and since the recipe was right, I decided wait for the results. The cake is delicious, and mega soft, but is a more buttery soft, I found quite different from all the cakes I’ve ever had, was a great experience, loved it.
