R.Questions regarding disproportionate and ratio.
a) The amount of bread flour is disproportionate to the amount of pastry flour, which mean one kind of flour is more than the other kind of flour in the recipe.
b) The ratio of
thebread flour and theto pastry flour is incorrect, which mean one kind of flour is more than the other kind of flour.
In both cases, it doesn't mean that there is a difference in the amount. It means that the proportions are wrong.
If the recipe calls for two parts of bread flour to one part of pastry flour then, if there are equal amounts, the amounts are still disproportionate.
