baking powder
If I use a recipe for a 12 servings of cornbread and try to convert it into a 160 serving do I need to adjust the baking powder????
It is critical NOT to multiply baking recipes above 4 times, and yes, you do need to adjust the baking powder. Use a tested food service recipe for 48-50 servings and do 3 batches.

Here is the Navy recipe for 2 18x26 pans (108 pieces) to use as a base.

In step 1, omit sugar if southern-style cornbread is desired.
