Salvage my Pound Cake?

I was in the middle of whipping up this recipe and accidentally tossed in a tsp of baking soda rather than the tsp of baking powder it asked for. Is there anything I can add to my batter to level things out? I do have buttermilk and yogurt in the fridge if I'll need to add some acidity.

EDIT: Just noticed it had actually asked for a 1/2 tsp of baking powder (this is what I get for having different versions of the same recipe next to each other on my browser). I ended up pouring in a cup of buttermilk and following the rest of the recipe as stated, though I probably should have tossed in another 1/4 tsp of salt or so. Will report back... keeping my fingers crossed!
