How do you divide dough before putting into loaf pans?

October 6, 2009 - 3:12pm -- Linda_Atkins


After my first rise, I have been punching the dough down or kneading a bit and then dividing it as best I can into two pieces before doing the final shaping and then placing in two loaf pans.  Normally one loaf is noticeably bigger than the other.  I know I need to get a scale, and will, but once I have that scale, if I need to remove small pieces of dough from one pile and add them to the other to get the two to be equal, then is there a trick to integrating the small bits of dough into the larger piece of dough?  Thanks in advance for advice!

Hi There,

 I am looking for a Muffin 'Bug' mother used to have one, and I would love to be able to recreate the Muffins she used to make......

Any recipes or hints about where to look for the recipe will be truly appreciated!

 Thank you in advance!
