Bitter Banana Bread

Hi everyone, i just tried a banana cake/bread recipe and my product turned out to be bitter..what could be the cause of it ? did i add too much baking powder, baking soda or vanilla powder ? Everything was good except for the bitterness...

PS : Could someone please tell me what does vanilla powder, extract do ? Thanks !

That is odd. I would suspect the baking soda as the culprit. Never seen vanilla powder myself so I can't answer that. How much baking soda did you put in?

I once made baking powder biscuits and wasn't paying attention and used baking soda by mistake. BLECH! Very nasty. Give it another try and tell us what happens. And WELCOME to DC.

Vanilla powder and extract are flavorings. They add vanilla flavor.
