    If I don't have enough bananas, can I substitute baby food bananas?

    I found this recipe confusing. In the ingredients list it mentions 2 tsp of baking powder but in the directions it says to add your baking soda. Also the ingredients mentioned 1/2 c milk but it is not mentioned in the directions so I added it with other. Wet ingredients. I also did not have a 6” cake pan so I used an 8” pan and the batter barely fit so I’m not sure what size pan is appropriate. Fingers crossed it comes out ok 😊
