A history of MORE as applied to baking
This is a page from California Heritage, specifically the Chocolate Dump Cake page. A well used page, as indicated by the smears, the spots, the suggestions with exclamation points indicating past failures. But note also the emphasis on MORE. See the recommendation for more chocolate in the dump cake. Before it was blurred , that note read, "could add more chocolate." A universally applicable proposition, a rule to live by. And then there is the suggestion that every frosting recipe be doubled. Or, if you are going to be mingy about it, "at least x 1.5."
