Baking aSoda makes it dark.and it leaves a horrible taste if not disolved properly inthe recipe...if the recipe has baking powder in it and plain flour.or self raising flour..I would be inclinded to leave out.....brown sugar , golden syrup/molasses.....would make it dark without having to use baking soda.
