Here in Norway we almost only use baking powder, and i think i only know one recepi with baking soda, and its for a small cookie we call &quot;Dreams&quot;, and it is in it only to make the &quot;crust&quot; get cracks in it. I found a applemuffin recepi yesterday, an american one, and it was baking soda in it. will give it a go, and maybe im starting to use more of it if it makes a better result than on ly using baking powder... Puh! Long comment. Sorry. :) Have a great day!Miss Lindy Leehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17078565029057146006noreply@blogger.com
