Conversion chart

 In Recipes



Click here to download a Printable version of this chart


Many of my readers have asked for a conversion chart as most of my baking recipes are done using the Metric system. I know that spoons, cups, etc. are different in many countries but these are the measurements that I use. As I’ve said before, when it comes to baking, I prefer to use my electric scale with grams/kilograms measurements because I find this to be the most accurate way of baking and once you start converting to cups, etc. it’s very easy to ruin the recipe. If you want the best results when it comes to my recipes, I would suggest you purchase a cheap electric scale which will make your baking so much easier.

    Hi: what the numbers on the 3rd circle are for? (Gas,1/4, 1/2, 1…)
    Thank you so much

      It is the gas measurement for gas ovens. 🙂

    Alida, As an American, We have difficulty understanding and /or converting g.’s./ ml.’s / kg.’s/…etc. to our more familiar measurements we use here.(cups, Tbls., tspns, ounces, pounds, etc.) so, I am especially happy to find your Conversion Chart !! I was just about to ditch your recipe since I could only guess what most of the recipe content amounts were. Happily, I happen to see your reference to your Conversion Chart. Whew !! I’m usually pretty good at figuring how a recipe works, But am lousy at metrics. (We were not introduced to metrics until lots of us were finished w/ our education) Plus we found it hard to unlearn our prior measurement education we grew up with, so thanks again.

      Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I realised pretty quickly that most of my traffic is American and that I’ll have to do a conversion chart as I really don’t want all you lovely State-siders to not be able to make my recipes. I’ve also started doing more and more of my recipes using cups instead of metric just to make things easier but where I struggle (as Metric is so drilled into me), I hope this conversion chart helps. 🙂
