I use metric measurements and an electric scale when I am in the kitchen, but I understand not everyone does. I always intend to include equivalent imperial measurements in my recipes however often I forget. So I have included this page to help you!

Temperature

Celsius (C) = Fahrenheit (F)
180 = 350
190 = 375
200 = 400
220 = 425

Mass

Grams (g) = Ounces (oz)
15 = 1/2
30 = 1
60 = 2
90 = 3
125 = 4
155 = 5
185 = 6
220 = 7
250 = 8

Cups & Spoons

Standard cup and spoon measurements do vary slightly between Australia and other countries such as the USA. The difference is only slight and unlikely to make any noticeable difference to the outcome.

Millilitres (ml) = Spoons
1.25 = 1/4 teaspoon
2.5 = 1/2
5 = 1
15 = 1 tablespoon
20 = 1 Australian tablespoon

Millilitres (ml) = Cups
62.5 = 1/4
83.3 = 1/3
125 = 1/2
250 = 1

Length

Centimetres (cm) = Inches
1 = 1/2
2 = 3/4
2.5 = 1
20 = 8
23 = 9
25 = 10

This information came from The Macquarie Dictionary of Cookery. If you would prefer to use an online calculator I recommend a visit to the National Measurement Institute’s website.

Happy Baking!
