I am studying for my exam and was wondering if anyone can give me tips on converting a formula(recipe) to a new yield:
I know I have to change the total percentage to decimal form.
say I want a 6lb batter
do I divide the total percentage of the recipe(formula) by the yield I want to figure out the amount of flour I need?
then once I have the weight of the flour can I figure out the rest by using the percentage method?
total percentage of the formula(recipe) 377.5%
round up to 26oz(1lb 10 oz) of flour
I hope someone can tell me if I have this figured out right or not
