Conversion Tables

I tend to cook in grams and millilitres, so most of my recipes on this site are written with the measurements in grams and mls.  However, you might prefer to cook in ounces.  These conversion tables are here to help you convert the measurements.  Please remember though that the recipes on this site have been tested using ingredients weighed in grams, so you may find your baking works out a little differently if you are measuring in ounces.  It will still taste good though.

The vital thing is not to mix the measurements. If you weighed the first ingredient in grams then make sure you weigh the rest of the ingredients in grams.

The metric to imperial conversions are taken from Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course and everything Delia does is right :).

Apologies to my American readers – I have investigated the conversion of grams to cups and it seems fraught with the potential to go wrong, and I wouldn’t want that to happen.

One response to “Conversion Tables

  1. I know what you mean about conversions being a minefield over here in the UK we are lucky only to have pounds/ounces/pints to convert to Millilitres

    AFAIK there are FIVE Cup measures standards so I tend to stick to the one conversion done by the Metric Kitchen (http://www.jsward.com/cooking/conversion.shtml) just out of preference and it seems to work quite well
