I was a tad confused as the recipe list says baking powder, and the recipe itself says soda. I used powder and I'm not sure that was right. The flavor wasn't quite there. If I made this again, I would use soda instead and maybe use more bananas so you could taste them better. Walnuts were a nice addition though!
