    Re: quick and easy Snack Cakes

    Thanks so much, what a great assortment to choose from. Could I sub whole grain flour for white? I do not use white. I also do not use baking soda, if I left it out would it matter? or what could I replace it with? Same with sugar, do not use white sugar or fake sugar but agave is fine.

    Re: quick and easy Snack Cakes

    BB what do you normal subsititute for baking power ??

    baking soda To be Replaced (substitute the acidic liquids in the recipe with non-acidic ones. For example, use an equal amount of water or milk instead of citrus juices/vinegar OR an equal amount of whole milk instead of buttermilk/yogurt.

    sugar  if you use agave doesnt it add to liquid  I dont use it often so you probably know more about it ..

    Flour is interchangeable

    I would be very interested in what you for Baking soda .
