Is 1 TB of baking powder a typo

I was making a bread and it called for 1 TB of baking powder which seemed like a lot to me - but I don't often make quick breads so who knows.

It called for 3 cups of flour, 3 tb brown sugar, 1 tb baking powder, salt, 12 ounces beer, and 4 tb butter on top. I don't want to cut into it and taste it as its for guests but does the 1 TB sound strange?

eh tasted it - tastes pretty terrible - don't know if its because of the baking powder though. Just sweet, raw, and weird.

Sounds right to me! That's typically how much is called for in the recipes I have saved / bookmarked.

Yeah, that's about right. I use baking powder with no aluminum (Rumford, or Argo) it's good for recipes that take a lot of baking powder.

Yeah, beer batter bread has an interesting flavor, usually sweet, but not raw.
