    bitter aftertaste from this recipe....

    I am a friend of happy harry and I brought fresh strawberries over to her. She told me how to get to this place and I found recipe Strawberry Shortcake Muffins #80737.

    I made them with harry talking me through. They lokked wonderful and tasted great until the aftertaste came through. Harry thought it was the baking powder but told me to ask the folks here, so I am wondering what went wrong? I know if harry could see and do this herself they would be great.

    I don't much care for muffins, because I almost always think they have an aftertaste I don't like (I would describe it more as a slightly burning sensation, leaving a dry mouth), whereas everybody else likes them just fine. Sometimes gives me the feeling there is something wrong with my tastebuds. icon_smile.gif I believe it to be the taste of baking powder. Strangely enough I eat cakes baked with baking powder all the time - no strange aftertaste at all!
    So, I really can not say what the problem with your recipe was, it looks like a usual muffin recipe, but perhaps it is just that you and me ( and nobody else I ever heard of) are especially sensitive to something in muffins?
    Rethinking, probably not, you must have eaten muffins in the past, without aftertastes, didn't you? So this rather long post does not lead anywhere.icon_biggrin.gif

    Could you please be a little more specific with regards to "aftertaste" icon_biggrin.gif

    Do you mean sour, bitter, chalky, skunky, or what? Some people are sensitive to baking powder, so maybe you are, or perhaps one of your ingredients -- milk, perhaps, or the berries -- was turning.

    If you could let us know what about the taste bothered you, it would help in narrowing down the culprit icon_smile.gif
