help with muffins!
I'm not talking about normal muffins; I'm talking about muffins with a filling. A recipe I found says to 'fill muffin cups halfway full'; you then add your filling and the rest of the batter to fill it about 3/4th of the way full.
My question is how many tablespoons of batter do you add to a muffin cup to make it halfway full? I realize it depends on what size muffin cup you're using as there are two sizes-standard and jumbo. My muffin tin just has standard size holes.
For measuring, would you use a tablespoon that you'd eat with or a tablespoon as in the measuring spoon? Recipe I found says use 2 tablespoons of red bean paste (it's a paste and is semi-sold in consistency) per muffin; is this too much? I'd prefer to use grams for the filling as it would be more consistent than me just guesstimating. I would like to do the same thing for the batter too. How many grams/ounces does a standard muffin hole/cup hold (not all twelve, just one).
I am assuming I'd weigh the batter and divide by 24 for a recipe that yields 12 muffins (since you fill it halfway, add filling, then add the rest of the batter) or am I wrong on this?
