Scaling Up Your Favourite Cake Recipe

Most cake recipes are for a standard 8 inch cake. To scale it up to a 9 inch cake

9 x 9 = 81      = 1.2
8 x 8 = 6

In English nine multiplied by nine = 81 is the size of your tin
8 multiplied by 8 = 64 the size of your recipe

So divide the 8 inch cake into the 9 inch cake and you get 1.2 Multiply each ingredient in the recipe by this amount.

eg.
butter 300g times 1.2 = 360g
300 caster sugar times 1.2 = 360g
6 large eggs (65g) times 1.2 = 7 large eggs(78 g)

etc…
