To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The recipes in this book are fabulous, with one glaring exception. Some of the measurements are off! The very first recipe I made produced cupcakes that were heavy and dry. I could not figure out what I did wrong. I began going back through the recipe, item by item, to find the problem. I found the problem and could not believe it. The usual volumetric measurements are given and then the measurements are given by weight. This is the proper way to bakc, you always use weight. However, when the volumetric measurements were converted by someone, probably not Bill Yost, they made errors. In the recipe I made, the volumetric measure was appropriate, but the weight was twice what it should have been. I ended up using twice the amount of flour due to this. This book had great recipes, just be sure to double check measurements or you may have problems.
