What causes the metallic aftertaste in my pancakes?

Densible | Jul 15, 2007 11:24 AM

I make really good pancakes and this mornings batch of blueberry beauties had a metallic taste. SO claims not to have noticed but he may be just trying to please me. Is it me? I have noticed this "gassy" metallic taste before in other homemade baked goods such as cookies and cakes. I read on these boards that expired baking powder may be the culprit and now always make sure I use fresh powder and that I shake up the tin. I still detect the aftetaste though-it's very strong and very unpleasant. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what the cause may be and what I can do to avoid it in the futue?

I love to bake and am always anxious about the esults and very disappointed when something I have worked hard on ends up tasting like it has lead shavings in it.
