  6. Divide the dough in hälf. Divide eäch hälf into 8 equäl sized pieces. You should häve 16 dough bälls. (If you wänt smäller muffins, divide eäch hälf into 11 pieces to equäl 22 dough bälls.) Roll eäch piece into ä bäll änd flätten the bäll into ä disk.

NOTES:


  • To get muffins thät äre uniform in size, I suggest weighing the dough. For 16 muffins, eäch portion of dough should weigh 60 gräms.
