Kitchen Basics 101: Making Half a Recipe Use the original cooking temperature/time as a reference point but monitor closely for the results you are looking for; If you are baking half a recipe of cake, bread or pie, then the cooking time about two thirds to three quarters of the original time. Pan Size: Try to use a pan that has half the volume of the one called for in the original recipe.
Microwave Peanut Brittle Recipe - This recipe is so easy you do not need a candy thermometer. Peanut Brittle was my dad's favorite candy.
