I made breakfast yesterday, using one of the breakfast muffin recipes that I posted last week. The bacon and cheese muffins sounded good to me, so that was the plan. I had sausage but not bacon, and remembering my vow to be resourceful and not wasteful, I decided to use the sausage on hand instead of buying bacon. I used Applegate Natural links which are gluten free. I thinly sliced two links for the recipe.
Usually, when I fill muffin tins, I tend to put too much batter in each cavity. As a result, I often end up with only 10 or 11 cavities filled , and thus not a complete dozen. This time, though, there was only enough batter to fill six of the twelve cavities.
The recipe came from a muffin cookbook I bought years ago. It did not specify using a mini-muffin tin, and the muffins in the photo appeared to be regular sized. So, why after using the measurements prescribed, did I end up with only a half-dozen? The biscuit mix was a gluten-free variety. That sometimes affects the consistency of what is baked, but it shouldn’t affect the amount of batter produced. Any thoughts?
