    I made a quick bread this morning from a new recipe

    I *thought* the recipe called for baking soda but it was actually supposed to be baking powder

    The bread didn't rise to it's normal height but it doesn't look flat either

    Is it still edible?

    May not look good but bet it tastes like bread. Go for it.

    I will-Thank you

    After I realized my mistake, I baked another bread (apple-pear-pecan) so now I have 2 breads

    It's still edible, however since typically you would use about twice as much baking powder as soda, you'll probably notice the soda taste.

    This recipe (King Arthur's) didn't call for any powder-just 3/4 tsp baking soda which I used powder instead. I always get those two confused:rolleyes:
