    Hi all,

    Yesterday I made some banana cake but I'm not sure how to point it? I would say the cake has 8 portions.. maybe more?

    Ingredients are:

    2x bananas
    6oz SR flour
    6oz stork margarine
    6oz sugar
    3 eggs

    Help!!

    I would point each item individually, add them together and weight the cake to find out the weight for all the PPs, then portion the cake into weighed slices so you know how much is in each..? Does that make sense?

    2x bananas - 0pp
    6oz SR flour - 17pp
    6oz stork margarine - 25pp approx?
    6oz sugar - 17pp
    3 eggs - 6pp

    65pp per cake. So if you split it into 8 EQUAL portions it would = 8pp per slice. But you would need to weigh the whole cake and then divide into 8 equal slices according to the weight....
