I have a question about the recipe "Mandarin Orange Cake" from thirschfeld. If I want to make this for 40 people, is it ok to double ingredients?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Nancy is a trusted home cook.
To make in one go? Yes, most recipes work in a double batch. And don't work in multiples larger than 2.
Will a recipe that serves 8+ serve 40 when doubled? Doubtful.
Even If you get 10-12 slices per cake (a reasonable guess), you'll need 3-4x the original to serve49 people.
Typo. Should read at end: to serve 40 people.
