    Lovely flavor. Mine almost didn't rise at all, they came out barely any taller than when they went into the oven. I know that soda and sour together leaven but I think they could have used some baking powder as well. They were also quite oily. When I checked them at 15 mins there was oil bubbling up between the muffin and the paper liners, the paper muffin cups fell away from the muffins as they cooled. I used Splenda for the sugar but I always use it and it doesn't inhibit rising or fat absorption (which btw, did soak back into the muffins by the time they were completely cooled). Loved the cinnamon vanilla flavor with the carrot and pecans and I can only conclud that if they were good enough for the White House something was wrong in my batch somewhere.

    These are delecious and packed with a nutition punch with all the carrots, they have a cinnamon flavor and remind me a little of carrot cake yet with their own flavor! A keeper, my family loves muffins and these are now in my recipe file! Thanks for the great post!
