Baking SODA, Member Baker_

I should have realized immediately that baking powder was an error in this recipe. After the first batch, though, there was no mistaking it. I knew right away that it was baking SODA that was supposed to go in. The first batch was awful; the subsequent batches were fine with the addition of baking soda.
