    I made Quick Amish Friendship Bread or Muffins (No Starter Required) yesterday and would like to know how I can find
    nutrition facts based on one serving rather than based on the 2 loaves it produces. I believe this happens because of the way the recipe was entered but wonder if you can fix it at your end. Thank you.

    What I would do is divide the present nutritional information in half - that would give you the values for one loaf. At that point, you would have to decide how many servings one loaf is going to make - 10 to 12 is my guess. So you would divide by, say, 10, to get the single serving calculation.

    I don't believe they normally add servings if the original contributor did not indicate the number of servings.

    Hi Duonyte. Thank you, that was my theory too. But now it makes me wonder what the correct method is for posting a recipe such as that.

    If a recipe makes two loaves do you show the yield as 2 loaves and 20 servings or do you show it as one loaf and 10 servings and then under yield say that it makes 2 loaves. Directions need to be clearer when posting I think.

    There really are no directions to that level. Some people put no categories, other people put wildly wrong ones (ham and cheese pinwheels in the Breads category, for example). Older recipes have neither servings nor yield, and at least that is no longer happening.

    The only way to have consistent entry of recipes would be if the same person or group of persons was entering the recipes, and that's not what the site is about.

    I know, it doesn't really satisfy your need, but I don't think there is an easy fix of this.

    duonyte is correct, the original contributor would need to be the one to make any changes. We do not make nutritional changes for them.
