    Doubling a Muffin Recipe

    Is there a problem with doubling a muffin recipe? I need 24 muffins, and my recipe is for 12. If I double the ingredients, and bake about the same amount of time should that work.

    The recipe has 1 t. Baking Powder and 1/2 t. Baking Soda. Should those leaveners be adjusted in any way?

    if I am just doubling, I normally do a straight increase of all ingredients. It's when you are increasing more than that that things can go out of balance. Sometimes it's just better to make multiple batches, but increasing from 12 to 24 muffins should be pretty straightforward.

    The one thing I would suggest is to make sure the leaveners are really well distributed with the flour - put in a large bowl and whisk together very thoroughly, or sift together. The more flour you have, the harder it is to ensure that the leaveners and salt are evenly distributed.

    Happy baking!
