Pancake Math

It's a puzzle... you have your perfect pancake batter. But it makes either too many or too few. What to do?

And if that's too complex, the lovely students at Sheffield U have produced a handy-dandy calculator. It looks like this:

To use it you'll have to go to the university's website. Note, they're coming from the UK so when they say "pancake" they're thinking crepe-size, not the smaller American type. Bon appetit!
