Scaling a recipe means adjusting the ingredient quantities and/or the yield of the recipe to make more or less of the final product. There are a few different reasons why you might need to scale a recipe:
- You want to make more or fewer servings than the recipe yields.
- You want to use a different size or type of baking dish or pan.
- You want to adjust the ingredient quantities to suit your taste preferences.
With Food Label Maker, you can scale a recipe up or down with a few simple clicks.
- Go to the recipe you would like to scale!
- Click on Manage Recipe and Then Scale recipe.
- A box will appear where you need to input the scaling factor.
If you want to scale up your recipe 10 times, enter 10. If you want to scale down your recipe use a decimal between 0 and 1. For example enter 0.5 to scale down your recipe by half.
Once you do that, the tool will generate a new recipe with the ingredient quantities adjusted based on your scaling factor. For example, if the original recipe calls for 1 cup of flour, you would multiply 1 by 1.5 to get 1.5 cups of flour for the scaled recipe.
