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
mini 30ml 1 1/2 Tbsp.
regular 1 80ml 1/3 cup
regular 2 125ml 1/2 cup
Texas 180ml 3/4 cup

 

Cake Pans
20cm spring form cake pan 8 inch
20cm square cake pan 8 inch
23cm spring form cake pan 9 inch
25cm spring form cake pan 10 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.

Oven temperatures

Celsius (electric) Celsius(fan forced) Fahrenheit gas
120º 100º 250º 1 very slow
150º 130º 300º 2 slow
160º 140º 325º 3 moderately slow
180º 160º 350º 4 moderate
190º 170º 375º 5 moderately hot
200º 180º 400º 6 hot
230º 210º 450º 7 very hot
250º 230º 500º 9 very hot

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