Very nice just tasted a bit salty is that because of the amount of baking powder ?

This is the first recipe that none of the family enjoyed and I had to end up throwing them away. They didn't taste at all like scones and had a strange spongy type texture. I did follow the recipe exactly but as this is the first time I have used rice flour in a cake recipe I am not sure whether this is the normal result. All the other recipes I have tried have been brilliant and delicious and can recommend but unfortunately, this isn't a recipe I would use again unless anyone can give me some tips about the results of using rice flour.
