    Default Plus? Wassat?

    Ran into a recipe for cauliflower that calls for something called
    "Plus". The site was FoodDownUnder. Anybody know what this is?

    Whatever you do, no matter what anybody says... never, EVER, post a link
    the recipe you're referring to.

    Sounds a bit like those herbal mixtures that are inaccurately alleged to
    be a substitute for salt.

    Now I see it, at http://fooddownunder.com/cgi-bin/recipe.cgi?r=135050

    It's a limitation of their database software. It's "1/4 cup plus (that
    is, AND) 2 Tbsp of flour".

    That's my take on it also, especially considering that "Plus" is never used
    in the cooking instructions.

    Ah! A sensible explanation. I had not thought of that.

    It makes sense. I thank you.

    Ok, but why? i mean, why write 1/4 cup plus 2 tbs. flour? when all the
    flour is used on the waxed paper in one pile? Does an extra 2 tbs. of
    flour really make any difference?

    Unless? could the extra 2 tbs. to be spread on the oiled baking sheet?

    1/4 cup is 4 tbs, so 2 tbs is an extra 50%. For people who measure,
    that's a big difference. People who are comfortable with measuring
    might choose to do something different, like just do 6 tbs to start
    with, or 3/8 cup, but for people who are a little shaky about the math
    and measurement in general, most people are more comfortable with
    dirtying two measuring devices for one pile of flour.

    Ok! if you say so. but wouldnt have 6 tbs have been better to write?
    course this gets back to Serenes original explination regarding the
    limitations of the generating program?

    A typo, even if not of Pluches?

    A good question, but beyond my ability to answer. I see this usage all
    the time. People must have a reason for doing this. I made my
    suggestion, but the idea is foreign to me, so I'm not a good person to
    explain something that seems unnatural to me.

    > A typo, even if not of Pluches?


    I did a search on the site for "plus". I got 43 hits. None of them
    made sense, other than as a bug in the database software.

    Recipes that have odd amounts like that sometimes are cut/scaled down
    from larger amounts, eg catering or restaurant quantities.

    Mostly we don't bother with that little bit extra unless it's clear it's
    for sprinkling on something or flouring a pan etc.

    Do you really consider 50% to be a little bit extra? Granted, it's just
    for coating the cauliflower, but I'd hate to run out, plus the spices
    will be much stronger even if you don't.
