Enter the total ingredients used and the total ingredient required by the recipe into the Baking Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Baking Ratio. 

Baking Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Baking Ratio. 

  • Where BKR is the Baking Ratio
  • IU is the total ingredients used 
  • IR is the total ingredient required by the recipe 

To calculate the baking ratio, divide the total ingredients used by the total ingredients required by the recipe.

How to Calculate Baking Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Baking Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total ingredients used.
    • The total ingredients used is given as: 30.
  2. Next, determine the total ingredient required by the recipe.
    • The total ingredient required by the recipe is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Baking Ratio using the equation above: 


The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

BKR = 30 / 20 = 1.5

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total ingredients used = 60

total ingredient required by recipe = 40

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

BKR = IU / IR = ?
