Did you sift it! It is one of my favorite cakes that I make,I have never tasted the Baking soda,but I usually double sift the dry ingredients so maybe that is why.

Try replacing it with baking powder.

Add a dessert spoon of white vinegar to your liquid ingredients. It takes away that soda flavour.Otherwise you can exchange it for baking powder and your cake will still be fine.

1 1/2 cups soft brown sugar; 2 cups plain flour; 2 tsp baking powder;
125g firm butter, chopped into pieces; 2 cups of new season walnuts roughly chopped
(I threw them into the food processor and pulsed till roughly chopped)
1 cup milk; 1 tspn baking soda;1 large or 2 small eggs ( I used two eggs)

Pre-heat oven to 175c.

Lightly butter and flour 23cm round tin ( I used a springform tin)
Put brown sugar, flour baking powder and butter into processor
and whizz till it resembles fine crumbs.
Take 2 cups of mixture and press firmly into bottom of prepared tin,
sprinkle the walnuts evenly over the top.
Add the nutmeg to the remaining crumbed mixture still in processor.
Beat the milk, eggs and soda together
and slowly add to processor with motor running to make a smooth batter.
Pour batter over crumbled mix in tin.

Bake 45 mins until cake is springy.
Cool 10 mins before turning out. Dust with icing sugar when cold.
