    My muffins rose then sank, why? Beautiful to eat though. Are baking soda and bicarbonate of soda the same? Tania  -  23 Apr 2014


    I liked this recipe, except I put more sugar, a splash of milk,left out baking soda, and put a tsp of vanilla. it was quite good. Also for just a fancy touch I sprinkled powdered sugar on top.  -  18 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
