how do you triple a recipie

by Ryan Preiano

I need to know how to triple a recipe because my pan calls for 15 CUPS of cake batter and my recipe only makes 5 CUPS. I don't want to have to mix the same batter three please help!!

From the editor,

The problem with that much batter is that it won't fit into any domestic mixer. You could try doubling the ingredients and mixing one batch, then make a regular batch and add that to the pan. Mix by hand a little before baking to blend the two different batches of batter.

Just multiply each amount of ingredient by 3! and do the recipe normally.
