Just wanted to update the cakes came out perfectly using the 4/3 ratio. Thanks all!

Fab, considering I followed a delia recipe years ago and used the correct size tins and ended up with 2 pancakes I've always been a bit wary of untried and tested recipes! Will turn the oven down a bit too.

4 eggs, 93g flour, and 4/3 of the amount of any other ingredient.

Might be worth turning the oven down a bit (say 10 dec C), and extending the cooking time slightly

Use your tins but reduce cooking time. It will take a little less time and be a bit thinner.

It's a fatless sponge, 3 eggs 70g flour so not usual sponge quantities. Which is why I'm scared! Thanks carolra

I'd adjust the recipe... Add an extra egg then work out the other quantities... i.e. if it asks for two eggs, make it 3 and multiply everything else by 1.5 or if its three eggs, make it 4 and multiply everything else by 1.33. I find that easier than trying to add parts of eggs!!!

Can I adjust the recipe? I don't want 2 biscuits!
