why do my muffins taste metallic?

Once again, it is not you but your baking powder sabotaging your awesome kitchen prowess. That slightly bitter, kinda “tinny” flavor you often experience when biting into a muffin, biscuit or scone is the result of using a baking powder in high quantities — as is needed for these quick-rise treats — with aluminum in it. Fortunately, aluminum-free brands such as Rumford or Bob’s Red Mill are easy to find, and are no more expensive. Or, you can just go rogue and make your own.

    I have been having this problem and I use Rumford, aluminum-free baking powder. I have been noticing it in the veggie muffins and pancakes I made for my toddler and they don’t have any sugar in them, could that be the reason?

    I’ve never used baking powder. My entire family can taste its bitterness doesn’t matter if it is aluminum free. I half the baking powder and use baking soda instead and make sure there is something acidic. Often adding lemon juice or vinegar to the milk. I’ve never had an issue though I can’t really compare properly.

    What is a difference between a biscuit and a scone? This question is from Australia. I think we call USA biscuits scones and biscuits are actually what americans call cookies……the recipes sound like scones. Please help
