Baking soda, did it ruin my cake?

In a recipe for a chocolate mayo cake, the recipe called for 2 tablespoons of baking soda to be mixed with 1 cup warm water and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. then add to dry ingredients. I accidentally added the baking soda to the dry ingredients as I was sifting. so I just mixed the water and vanilla and added to mix. this was the first time with this recipe and the cake was not a success. could that have caused the problem?

Answer #1

It could have, but it doesn’t seem that likely. Maybe you should decrease the amount of baking soda and try again?
