Baking Conversions And Measures
These tables for baking conversions and measures mean you can bake my easy chocolate recipes no matter where in the world you are. Living in Australia often means I have to convert baking temperatures and measurements when I try recipes from the internet.
It always amazes me how small the world is becoming these days. People contact me through my site from all over the world so I hope these tables are of assistance to you especially if you just want to convert imperial to metric. I even find myself using them.
I have included tables for:
- cup measure conversions
- oven temperature baking conversions
- liquid measure conversions
- length measurement conversions
If you keep heading down the page I have also recently added:
- cups to grams for plain flour
- cups to grams for caster sugar
The addition of this information came as a request from a chocolate recipe fan from England, so if there is anything you would like me to include in the future please let me know through my contact me page.
If you have questions concerning any baking terms

page. And just in case you are wondering, yes the recipes for all these delicious chocolate treats can be found on my site! In fact this is just a taste of what you can find.

These oven temperatures are only a guide. We have all experienced the variances that different oven models and thermostats can give.
I have baked all the recipes on inspired by chocolate and cakes in a conventional oven. Fan-forced ovens (convectional) are usually a little hotter in their baking.
If using a fan-forced oven please read your manufacturers instruction manual first. They will usually tell you to set the oven temperature 10-20oC lower.
I have to add that recently I moved house and as a result acquired a new oven. The way it bakes bares no resemblance to my old reliable oven.
So I did what I advise and read the manufacturers instructions and it advised that I reduce the temperature by 30oC! so now I find myself adjusting my own recipes.
