Baking powder in muffins. How much?

I have two, almost identical recipes apart from one having 2 teaspoons of baking powder per 2 cups of flour and the other 4 teaspoons. I am tempted to try 3 tspns.

kclu, muffin recipes sure do seems to vary re the amount of baking powder per cup of flour - Most of Allyson Gofton's muffin recipes that have just baking powder and no baking soda appear to have 2 tsp baking powder per 1 cup flour, however the two most often used muffin recipes that I have use 3/4 tsp baking powder to 1 cup flour and 1 tsp baking powder per 1 cup flour - both make lovely light muffins. :-))

i've always done 1 cup flour for 1 tsp powder but you need more if the muffins have heavy filling like fruit etc
i don't like tasting the raising agent!

I agree with the above, I always do 1tsp to 1cup flour. I also don't like tasting the raising agent hence I never use self-raising flour either.
