Cooking and baking conversions
Many international recipes will use the metric system and if you need help converting any of the measurements because you are used to the Imperial system, this cooking conversion chart has you covered. Spoons, cups, etc are different in many countries but these are the measurements I use so this chart is especially handy for any recipes you might need help with on Simply Delicious.
When it comes to baking, I prefer using my electric scale with gram/kilogram measurements because it is the most accurate. An affordable electric scale is an excellent investment for anyone who likes to bake. However, these conversions should make it much easier for you when it comes to baking and cooking.
Tools for measuring ingredients
As mentioned above, I prefer using an electric scale when baking. Other measuring tools that are necessary are:
- Measuring cups. These are used for dry ingredients like flour, sugar, cocoa powder, etc.
- Measuring spoons. These are used for smaller amounts of ingredients like baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, etc.
- Liquid measuring cups or jugs. Measuring jugs are super handy because they have the measurements on the side which helps when using milk, oil or melted butter in a recipe.
How to measure ingredients
- How to measure dry ingredients: Fill the cup to the brim then scrape with the back of a knife or flat spatula to even out.
- Measuring liquid ingredients: For small amounts you’ll be using measuring spoons but for anything from a quarter of a cup and up, you’ll need to use liquid measuring cups or jugs. Place the jug on a level surface and slowly fill to the desired volume.
