When you double or trriple a recipe then you do as follows:

example recipe is chocolate chip cookies.

In this recipe it calls for 1/2 cup butter (one stick)

so I want to double it so I put 2 sticks in.

Then it asks for 1 cup brown sugar, so I put in 2 cups. etc. etc.

you just double your measurements 🙂

Just do the same thing you would normally do but with more ingredients; just make sure you’ve done your math right or you’re in for a disaster. 😛

yes, you can triple this all in the same bowl.

Occasionally you’ll run up against a more finnicky recipe, like a really fluffy cake or some pastry recipes that don’t double well, but something like this is simple enough that it’s just a matter of mixing it well.

Just do 3x as much of each ingredient listed.

@ddw:your right, the only time I have run into issues with trying to double a recipe it has been baking I never have the problem with anything else

@miss sparkly cat: yep. it’s something about the chemistry of certain combinations, or at least that’s what I’ve heard. a good rule of thumb in my experience is that the more complicated the steps in a recipe, the more exact the portions need to be, and the worse it doubles.

Sorry to be thread jacking, but did anyone else find “seasoned cooks” to be funny?
