  4. Knead 3 min/Closed lid/Dough mode. Transfer to large clean bowl and let rise overnight at room temperature, covered with lid, Thermomat or damp clean tea towel. Alternatively, you can leave in TM bowl until doubled in size for a quicker rise.

  5. Sprinkle baking paper with rice flour. Lift dough out of bowl and roll out on Thermomat to about 1.5 cm thick. Cut rounds with biscuit cutter or large empty tuna can. Transfer onto baking paper and dust top of muffins with rice flour. Cover and let rise for 30 min.

Cook for a total of 15-20 min, turning over every few minutes until cooked through. The base and top should be golden brown. Transfer cooked muffins into dry tea towel whilst cooking the remainder.



Split or pull apart while still warm and enjoy toasted (or not) with butter and jam or marmalade. Use with poached eggs, shaved ham and Hollandaise sauce to make the ultimate Eggs Benedict.
