Why didn't these muffins rise?

We made these muffins at the same time we made corn muffins yesterday afternoon. The corn muffins rose but the morning maple muffins didn't? Any ideas why? Here is the link for the maple muffins. Thanks, Richie

  1. Old baking powder perhaps?

    1. Please reread my post again,I said the corn muffins rose but the maple muffins didn't.

      1. Well, I did not know if your corn muffin recipe included baking powder, humble apologies.

          Sorry if I seemed a bit hard in my response but I don't express well in typing. Richie

        2. They didn't rise at all? Or they rose only a little bit? If they didn't rise at all, I'm betting you forgot to add the baking powder to this recipe. I've done it -- get something in the oven and realize, uh-oh, I didn't add an important ingredient. If they did rise a little, it may be that it's just a heavier dough than the corn muffins, and that baking powder may be getting a little old.

          1. The rose only a bit. They were flat on the top. They tatsted delicious. What would off happened if I added a tsp of baking soda? Thanks, Richie
