    Why do some recipes ask for both bicarbonate and baking powder?

  2. Sara Deckers says:

    Is baking soda the same as bicarbonate of soda?

  3. Scot & Sam says:

    Your video title is incorrect! It should read "Bicarb and Baking POWDER", not soda. Yes?

  4. thelunchladyACS says:

    This is a great video! I am assigning watching it to my middle school Home Ec students and I've made up a page of questions for them to answer while they are watching it! Thank you , Jemma and Sally!

  5. Michelle Korrie-Paton says:

    Bicarbonate for sponges but in your β€œ how to make self raising flour” video, with Dane, you say to use baking powder? πŸ€”

  6. Samrat Saurav says:

    The host is so cute

  7. Fuzz Buzz says:

    The most clear explanation of what those two are ever in my opinion unlike when you goggle, all they would say it the composition of what baking powder and baking soda is. Thanks so much 😍😘

  8. Martina Wise says:

    Love it! Thank you for quick and fun video. If I do not have the required ingredient, what if I simply omit it? Reduce/increase something else? (Flour, butter, liquid, etc).

  9. Li'l Al says:

    But bicarb tastes like shite, so why would I use it?

  10. Andrea A. says:

    I've always heard "powder puffs, soda spreads"

    Is that true? Anybody know?

  11. Michele Angela says:

    What is different between baking soda and powder?

  12. debschublu says:

    Wait…did you mean sodium bicarbonate vs baking β€œpowder”? So I am running all over town looking for sodium bicarbonate and was always taken to the baking soda. And I tell them it’s different because one reacts to acid and one is for baking like you said. So I come home and rewatch the video and see you are showing sodium bicarbonate on one side and baking powder on the other! So sodium bicarbonate IS baking soda? Which is kind of what I thought but kept getting thrown by the title for the video. Is this right?

  13. Neil Barker says:

    Why then have you put both in the NY Cookies, curious.

  14. yadontknow says:

    I'm sorry but this is misinformation. Bicarbonate of Soda (which is 100% Sodium Bicarbonate) and Baking Soda (which is 100% Sodium Bicarbonate) are the EXACT same thing. This video is comparing the bicarb to Baking Powder- which is NOT the same as baking soda.
    I love this channel but there is some obligation to give accurate information when you have a decent amount of followers like you have and they all believe everything you say (just read the comments). Please re-title the video.

  15. 0faerieberry0 Sea says:

    Unfortunate that otherwise useful information is obscured by the words "soda" and "powder" being used interchangeably. This is one of the many times it comes in handy to read ingredients. If you look at the ingredients on a box of "baking soda," it will show you that it is sodium bicarbonate – the exact same thing as "bicarb." The title gives people the absolute wrong idea, as you can see in many of the comments. Some people simply happily state that they now "know the difference" between "bicarb," and "baking soda," when there is none. Some people have actually gone searching for bicarb to have on hand "instead" of baking soda.

    There is a difference with baking powder; it should be mentioned consistently as such.

  16. bingo2 says:

    this is great! thank you|!

  17. Ajita Nawathe says:

    I have seen many recipes where the chef has used both in some quantities why so??? Also can we use soda by carb in all the cakes wiry buttermilk so that the cake turns out super moist?

  18. Furious Vengeance says:

    Bicarbonate of soda vs itself? Is the title for the video wrong? I thought Baking Soda is just a different (American) name for Bicarbonate of Soda? So the title should be Bicarbonate of Soda vs Baking Powder. Right?

  19. nessa may desiree suganob says:

    misleading title!!! I feel scammed.

  20. Karen Heshka says:

    Is bicarbonate the same as baking soda
