Tips & Tricks

  • Substitute part of rhubarb (e.g., 80g) with fresh strawberries 🍓 for even more fruity taste.
  • Baking Soda distinguishes from baking powder. Although both raising agents let dough rise, they are not arbitrarily interchangeable. Both baking soda and baking powder form CO2 during the baking process, which makes the dough airy and loose. You will get a particularly airy dough if the recipe contains both baking soda and baking soda. Together, the two raising agents unfold their effect even more intensively.
