My cupcake rise is inconsistent. What's the best leavener(s) to use when baking with buttermilk?

I currently use a 50/50 of baking powder and baking soda, in line with my flour measurement. So, 2 cups flour would use 1 tsp each.

The amount of baking soda is relative to the amount of acid, which here is buttermilk. For every 8 ounces of acidic ingredient, use 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda along with your baking powder.
