I don't know the answer but usually when that happens it's because there is a character used in the recipe that doesn't translate once, a fraction. You know when you see 1/2 but it is typed out tiny with the 1 raised and the 2 lowered? That little teeny 1/2 is actually a "special character" and probably got eaten when posted.

Not much consolation I know, but perhaps you can search thru other copies of the recipe (if any exist) till you find one where they got the #'s correct? Sometimes when I'm trying to track down the origin of a recipe, I type several ingredients into Google, or a phrase from the recipe in "quotes," and just pore over the results to see if I can find a match on another site.

Sorry I couldn't be more help. You sure do make me curious about the recipe!

ETA in going into the memberlist I can see that PerryStCakes hasn't posted here since last year, but her website is still listed. Maybe you can contact her via the link on her website?

Edited a second time to add Darnit the curiousity got the best of me. I typed a phrase of the instructions into yahoo and found the recipe posted here It still has some funky characters but it looks like you can ignore the strange A character so that 1 Ã1/2 means 1+1/2. (I think but don't blame me if I'm making a bad assumption! icon_lol.gif )
