# A Recipe Calls For 2/3 Cup Of Flour A Cook Is Making A Recipe That Is 3/5 How Much Flor Should You

If a recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups of flour and you want to make five times the recipe, how much flour do you need?

I am sure you are not asking us how to multiply, I guess you are trying to ask whether all  ingredients propotionatly increase If you want 5 times the end product.Where flour or other staple carbohydrates like rice forms the bulk of the ingredients and generally it can just be multiplied or divided as your require, other ingredients particularly water will not directly be proportionate. As a general rule, the more you increase the amount of flour/rice etc, the lesser proportion of water would be required. Similarly, salt and various spices work the same way. As in everything in life, there are always the odd exceptions.For example, when cooking rice, if you are cooking 1 cup, may be the general rule of 1:2 water may give good results (again depends on the type, age of rice and the cooking method). Lets take rice cooking in a rice cooker and for 1 cup if 2 cups of water works fine, then for 3 cups rice maybe I'll add 5 1/2 cups of water or the rice will be mushy. Easy to understand in this instance, same vessel with same surface area of standing water given the same heat. Rice absorbs water and the heat in water also cooks it, needs a particular time for cooking to happen, meanwhile water is evoporating from the surface. Water is bound to evaporate away with boiling in a given time if the volume is less. So with more volume you need less propotion of water for rice to cook adequately. Different senario with flour...

A certain recipe calls for 5/6 cup of flour. A chef is making an amount that is 6/9 of the recipe.?

= 6/9(5/6)
= ([6/6]/9)(5/[6/6])
= 1/9(5)
= 5/9

How do you convert 1/3 of a cup into ounces?

“A pint’s a pound the whole world round,” which is to say that there are sixteen fluid ounces in a pint just as there are sixteen ounces in a pound.Divide 16 by 2 to get 1 cup: 8 oz.Divide 8 by 3 to get 1/3 cup: 2 2/3 oz.1/3 of a cup is 2 2/3 ounces.

What to make for dinner using ground hambuger?

I like to make what I call HOME MADE HAMBURGER HELPER, I boil up the noodles ( doesn't matter what kind) I saute the burger and then add veggies... what ever is in the house. I add a can of mushroom soup or if you don't have that I make a rue with flour and milk and cheese and pour it over the burger and veggies. Then I mix in the noodles.

USE : Mushrooms and onions and green pepper and then what ever else is on hand.
