I'm not familiar with that mix but sometimes baked goods can have a metalic taste from the baking powder. In my experience, the metalic taste become noticable or more pronounced can if there is too much baking powder or if the balance is change when we make substitutions in other ingredients. Many baking powders contain aluminum. There are some non-aluminum brands available. Rumford is one but some of us are having problems with that one and gluten-free/CF baking. Riceguy, a forum member, recently recommended Bob's Red Mill, which is evidently non-aluminum. There is another brand at Whole Foods that I came across but don't recall the name.

I have this theory that there is a Bread Baking Bean Flour :ph34r: Poltergeist, a spirit caught between the two worlds, that goes around from kitchen to kitchen, trying to bake a perfect loaf and always doomed to failure, and this time it was your turn to host it.

I would agree with the idea that if the baking powder has aluminum it can mess up the taste. Yes, I do highly recommend Bob's baking powder. I've been using it in all sorts of stuff and it's great!

Also, bean flours can have a offending taste if they are spoiled. That's one thing to avoid with Bob's Red Mill - bean flours. I've never had any bean flour from Bob's that was fresh. I read that due to the heat generated by stone griding, it will cause the oils in the beans to break down, resulting in rancid flour right out of the mill. And of course Bob's uses stone grinding. I buy my bean flours elsewhere, and haven't had any trouble with them.

Bob's gluten-free flour blend has bean flours, so I wouldn't suggest that. If you're just starting out gluten-free baking, I'd suggest trying some things that are easier to get right, and work your way to the other things as you learn how the flours behave. Try some gluten-free cornbread, muffins, cookies, brownies, or a sweetbread. Small things generally turn out good with less practice. You could even make a single muffin so you don't waste a whole bunch of flour.
