Weight & Measure Chart

Weight & Measure Chart

Does your apparatus calculate up?

Use cup and spoon measures for dry and solid ingredients and a measuring jug for liquid ingredients.

When measuring dry or solid items, dip the cup or spoon measure into the food and lift out.

Use the edge of a knife to scrape across the surface, removing excess ingredients so the surface is flat.

When measuring liquids, place the jug onto a flat surface and bend down to check at eye level.

Pan measurements

Muffin Pans
mini30ml1 1/2 Tbsp.
regular 180ml1/3 cup
regular 2125ml1/2 cup
Texas180ml3/4 cup

 

Cake Pans
20cm spring form cake pan8 inch
20cm square cake pan8 inch
23cm spring form cake pan9 inch
25cm spring form cake pan10 inch

To check your pan’s capacity, for a mini muffin pan pour 1 1/2 tablespoons (30ml) water into 1 hole in your pan. If the water comes right to the top (with none left over) it is 1 1/2 tablespoon capacity. Use the same method to measure regular or Texas muffin pans.

If using a fan-forced oven, your cooking time may be a little quicker, so start checking your food a little earlier
