Recipe Converter FAQ

How do you calculate servings for a recipe?

To calculate the serving size of a recipe, ingredient quantities are divided by the number of servings. For instance, if a recipe with a serving size of 2 requires 1 onion, we divide 1 onion by 2. Then, we know that 1 serving requires 0.5 onions.

How do you convert serving sizes?

To convert serving sizes, we incrementally adjust the individual serving size of each ingredient up or down. For example, if you adjust a recipe with 2 servings that needs 1 onion up to 4 servings, we’ll divide the ingredient amount by 2 (1 onion / 2 servings = 0.5 onions) and then multiply that by 4. The end result is 2 onions (0.5 onions x 4 servings).

Can all recipes be scaled up or down?

Yes, unless we are unable to recognize the recipe. If a recipe is not using standard recipe formatting, we may not be able to automatically populate the recipe content and ingredients. If Whisk is unable to recognize your recipe, you can copy and paste the details into the Recipe Builder and save it manually.

Can you just double a recipe?

To double a recipe, simply double the amount of servings by multiplying the serving size by 2. For instance, if your recipe serves 4, multiply that number by 2 to get 8. Then, use the “+” icon to adjust the serving size from 4 to 8.
