I have a question about the recipe ""World's Best Cake" with Banana & Coconut" from Sarah Jampel. I don't understand the 12/3 cups of sugar or the 11/3 cups of flour and see nothing about that in the comments
Lisanne is a trusted home cook.
It probably means 1-2/3 cups sugar and 1-1/3 cup flour.
Susan W is a trusted source on General Cooking.
Yes, as cremated said, it is 1 cup plus 2/3 and 1 cup plus 1/3. There is a space between the 1 and the fraction in the recipe, but it's small.
...rumors that my kitchen has gone up in smoke have been greatly exaggerated :)
Lol. I have to watch my kindle like a hawk. Good to see you're still with us. :)
Idiosyncrasies with the Food52 page layout design and how the pages interact with various web browser software make some recipes rather inscrutable.
I see you registered today. Expect to see similar head-scratching instructions on other recipe pages on this website from time to time. Use your best judgment and common sense to determine the actual intent of the recipe author.
Of course, if you have a question about a recipe, your best bet is to contact the recipe author directly. That also serves as an alert to that author that there is possibly a problem with the recipe in *ALL* of the places that it is posted (many recipes posted here are cross-posted on multiple websites).
