Hola, según las reglas de la pastelería una preparación no puede tener más cantidad de grasa que de harina. La preparé y no funcionó. Hay un error en los ingredientes?

Elabore la receta tal cual se indica pero, no subio, demasiada mantequilla flotaba en el pastel. 1 taza 1/2 de harina es lo que dice la receta. Por favor me explicas que sucedió porque a pesar de quedar como se indica desapareció fue un éxito. Gracias por su ayuda
