I found a recipe on here I wanted to try but Im not sure how to read it, 2 of the ingredients have a number and then a number sign before it what does that mean?
ex: 2# 7.2 oz
ex: 1 # cake flour
those are in the recipe, no idea what that means, never seen a recipe like that, any help would be great! Thanks!
can you post a link to the recipe or let us know which one it is?
Typically # = pound.
Im not sure how to post a link but it's Toni's Brownies posted in Chocolate cake i believe
I agree with Leily, usually # does mean pounds so it would be 2 pounds and 7.2 ounces 0r 39.2 ozs. and 1 pound cake flour. Does that look right with the rest of the ingredients?
Yes that would fit, Ive just never seen a # sign in a recipe. Thank you both for your replies!
aauugghhh! These are the kind of "peeves" I have when people write out recipes. It doesn't take that much more time to write it "right".
