    Wonderful cake. I read other reviews about soda taste. Looked up other recipes from friends and ended up switching quantities of baking soda and baking powder. It turned out perfectly. Thank you  -  05 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This seems to have too much baking soda in it. That is all you can taste when you eat the cake. The basic flavor seems pretty good but it is overwhelmed by a bitter baking soda taste that cannot be ignored. I had to throw the whole cake out!  -  31 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cake is delicious! It tastes just like gingerbread. I substituted applesauce for the shortening and topped the cake with whipped topping. You can't even tell there is a can of tomato soup in it!  -  16 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
