I found an interesting recipe and I would like to triple it in order to make 12 standard sized muffins.

These are the ingredients and based on this recipe, it makes 4 muffins.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped pecans

How can I triple the recipe and make twelve standard-sized muffins?r

  • I have an idea...what if I do the following ? do the scaling in such a way...3/4 cup butter 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips 3 eggs 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 cup chopped pecans..............................................................................what do you think ? is it going to work like this and be successful ? I need some feedback as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your help. – Electra_mar Nov 18 '17 at 21:40

    Yep. 3 x 4 = 12. Triple everything. – Stephie Nov 18 '17 at 22:05

Triple means "three time". Multiply all the ingredients by 3.

To double a recipe you would multiply everything by two.

To halve a recipe you would divide all ingredients by two.

(and so on)

    This must be the most elementary answer I have seen on this site. Nothing more to say, really. – Ian Nov 22 '17 at 14:02
