do you really need the baking soda? I understand that it isn't healthy.

As far as I know baking powder is the one with the problem.. There is aluminum in baking powder and this concerns some people. You can buy it without aluminum now. Baking soda seems to be fine...as far as I can see.

The fat in the cake would be a bigger health issue than a little bit of baking soda :o)
