"I tried this recipe today and was disappointed. The muffins did not rise, just spread out. They got too dark before they got done. I used fresh ingredients (baking soda and buttermilk) and followed the directions. I have been baking for more than 50 years so I don't believe experience is the issue. Any suggestions?"

"This recipe was okay on it's own, but I felt like it needed more flavor. I added a few shakes of cinnamon, a pinch of cloves, a 1/2 tsp. vanilla and a splash of orange juice to the batter.

I halved the recipe and still got about 36 normal-size muffins. There is much room for flavor additions."
