I've found that if you use too small a quantity of bread mix you get a
small brick instead of a nice fluffy loaf of bread.  Not sure why.

If you need to thinka bout the maths involved it's eady.  Divide the
orginal amout by 3 and add that much more.

So 1 cup of flour becomes 1 1/3 cups of flour.
   1 tsp of yeast becomes 1 1/3 tsp of yeast
   2/3 cup of water becomes 7/9 cup of water (or slightly less than 1)
