Baking soda and plain kombucha

I always feel i can taste the chemical flavor of baking soda and usually just use a fraction that a recipe calls for. Would this recipe work with less baking soda? And why plain kombucha? Wouldn’t it work with a flavored variety as well, imparting another dimension to the muffins?

Hi Mimolette, I do notice the baking soda flavor a bit when I do the agave version, which I don't mind, but using honey instead masks the baking soda flavor nicely. You could try reducing the baking soda a little, but the muffins will be less fluffy. And yes, flavored kombuchas could be fun to play with, too!
