cookbook search!!!! using "basic recipes" or formulas? [Moved from Cookware Board]

i read about this cookbook where this guy (vague, i know) basically noticed that all recipes for cakes had similar ratios, all pancakes, all crepes, all etcs basically have the same ratio. he has made a cookbook that has all the basic formulas or ratios...

if you have heard of it please let me know, i have been googling and am all googled out!!
you'd be surprised how many computer books i get when you put "formula"!!


thanks in advance!!
