## Step by step recipe

 1 Before you start cooking, weigh and make a note of the weight of the empty pan you are going to use. For instance, the pan you see in the photo weighs 552 g. 2 Then make the preparation as usual, and when it is finished, weigh the pan again full. For example, the pan full of custard you see in the photo: 948 g.Then calculate the weight of preparation you have made: 948 - 522 = 426 g. 3 If you need to divide this between 6 glasses, you will need 426 g /6 = 71 g, rounded down to 70 g per glass.Place a glass on the scales, reset to 0 g, and pour in enough cream to add 70 g. 4 Do this for all 6 glasses, and you will enjoy the satisfaction of scraping round the pan with a maryse or spatula to arrive exactly at the 70 g needed for the final glass!

## Remarks

This is particularly useful if you need to divide out two different preparations evenly, like for coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa for example.
Don't hesitate to take 5 minutes of your time, to weight and make a note of all your pans. It will be very useful one day.
