### Recipe ProjectCupcakes

Recipe makes

30 cupcakes!

By, Autumn G

Recipe…
• 1 3/4 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
• 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
• 2 cups sugar
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into cubes
• 4 large eggs
• 1 cup whole milk
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

How I got the answers for half the recipe

For all of the fractions, I would divide the fraction.

For example, the first fraction, I did was 1 ¾.

STEPS:

1) I had to make it into a improper fraction. 1 ¾ = 7/4

2) Now, 7/4 divided by 2, would look like this. 7/4 divided by 2/1

3) Now, you make a reciprocal, and when you do that, it changes to multiplication.

4/7 * ½ = 7/8

4) 7/8 is half of 1 ¾

5) I did the same for the following fractions too.

The recipe for half as many peopleThe recipe serves 30 people,and half of that is 15.

7/8 cup of cake flour ( not self rising )

5/8 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour

1 cup of sugar

½ tablespoon of baking powder

3/8 teaspoon of salt

1 sticks of unsalted butter, cut into cubs

2 large eggs

½ cup whole milk

½ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

How I got the answers when I doubledthe recipe.

So, for any fraction, if you are doubling it, you are multiplying it by 2.

Now when you are multiplying a fraction, you can’t just have 4/5 * 2. You have to

make 2, 2/1.

So in my first problem, I have to double 1 ¾

Steps:

1) 1 ¾ = 7/4

7/4 * 2/1 = 14/4

14/4 = 3 ½

3 ½ is the fraction. 1 ¾ doubled equals 3 ½

5) I did the same thing for all of the other fractions.

3 ½ cups of cake flour ( not self rising )

2 ½

4 cups of sugar

2 tablespoons of baking powder

1 ½ teaspoons of salt

4 sticks of butter, cut into squares

8 large eggs

2 cups of whole milk

2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

Serve my class and teacher

Well, this recipe makes 30 cupcakes, and there is 23 students ( including myself ), and 1 teacher. That is 24 people.

If everyone gets 1 cupcake, that would leave 6 extra, unless someone drops theirs or something. I wouldn’t need to adjust the recipe for the class.
