When making buns in a muffin tin, what weight should the bun dough be for each hole

Red Star Yeast | Reply

Hi Brenda,
We suggest that you weigh the batter/dough and divide by 18 to get the weight for each roll.
Happy baking!

Would Red Star consider having a regular paper book with these recipes? I was in an
accident years ago and can’t see e-books well. Absolutely love your recipes.
Thank you.

You are saying large muffin cups.. does this mean the standard size like a cup cake size? Or the Texas biggies?

Hi Linda, Use the cup cake size muffin tins for these rolls. Happy baking! ~Carol@RSY
