    Hi, The spoonbread recipe (ingredients below) that works more-or-less OK (I'd like it a little "fluffier"). The problem is that it seems to have a slightly metallic taste. This is probably from the baking powder, but the dish is already a little dense, so I don't want to cut back too much. Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Maybe switch some of the milk for buttermilk and go with baking soda instead of baking powder. Or mix up single acting baking powder Baking Powder: Single Acting and Double Acting and use that. You'll have to adjust amounts to get the lift you want and get it in the oven fast.

    Nice idea! A little buttermilk would improve the taste, too.

    I'll give it a try!

    Thanks!
