Halachipedia says

Bracha Rishona: After the fact if one recited mezonot on anything besides water or salt, one fulfilled one's obligation.

He quotes the following authorities:

Chaye Adam (v. 1, 58:3), Halacha Brurah 206:7, Igrot Moshe OC 4:40. Ritva Brachot 2:16 writes that after the fact Mezonot is effective even for bread.
