Conversion Charts

Being Australian, I tend to use a combination of Australian-standard cup measures, Australian-standard tablespoon measures, grams (g), kilograms (kg), millilitres (mL) and litres (L). I also cook using  Celsius and tend to use Australian/UK terminology.

I’ve put together a basic conversion chart system for those of you who are reading and baking from outside of Australia in the hope that it’ll make things a bit easier for you! Note that all conversions (other than spoon conversions) have been rounded slightly.

TERMINOLOGY

Baking Soda = Sodium Bicarbonate/Bicarbonate of Soda/Bread Soda/Cooking Soda

Caster/Castor Sugar = Superfine Sugar

Cooking Chocolate = Baking Chocolate

Cornflour = Cornstarch/Maize Starch

Desiccated Coconut = Dried/Shredded Coconut

Golden Syrup = Corn Syrup/Cane Syrup

Icing Sugar = Powdered/Confectioner’s Sugar

Plain Flour = All-Purpose Flour

Self Raising Flour = Self Rising Flour

*

AUSTRALIAN SPOONS

1 Australian teaspoon = 5mL

1 Australian tablespoon = 20mL

*

AUSTRALIAN CUPS

1/4 cup = 60mL

1/3 cup = 80mL

1/2 cup = 125mL

1 cup = 250mL

*

LIQUIDS: mL / L – fl oz

30mL = 1 fl oz

60 mL (1/4 cup) = 2 fl oz

80 mL (1/3 cup = 3 1/2 fl oz

100mL = 2 3/4 fl oz

125mL (1/2 cup) = 4 fl oz

150mL = 5 fl oz

180mL (3/4 cup) = 6 fl oz

200mL = 7 fl oz

250mL (1 cup) =  8 3/4 fl oz

310mL (1 1/4 cups) = 10 1/2 fl oz

375mL (1 1/2 cups) = 13 fl oz

430mL (1 3/4 cups) = 15 fl oz

475mL = 16 fl oz

500mL (2 cups) = 17 fl oz

625mL (2 1/2 cups) = 21 1/2 fl oz

750mL (3 cups) = 26 fl oz

1L (4 cups) = 35 fl oz

1.25L (5 cups) = 44 fl oz

1.5L (6 cups) = 52 fl oz

2L (8 cups) = 70 fl oz

2.5L (10 cups) = 88 fl oz

GRAMS/KILOGRAMS – OUNCES/POUNDS

10g = 1/4 oz

15g = 1/2 oz

30g = 1 oz

60g = 2 oz

90g = 3 oz

125g = 4 oz (1/4 lb)

155g = 5 oz

185g = 6 oz

220g = 7 oz

250g = 8 oz (1/2 lb)

280g = 9 oz

315g = 10 oz

345g = 11 oz

375g = 12 oz (3/4 lb)

410g = 13 oz

440g = 14 oz

470g = 15oz

500g (1/2kg) = 16 oz (1 lb)

750g = 24 oz (1.5  lb)

1kg = 32 oz (2 lb)

1.5kg = 48 oz (3 lb)

2kg = 64 oz (4 lb)

*

CELSIUS – FAHRENHEIT & GAS MARK

120 Celsius = 250 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 1 (very slow)

150 Celsius = 300 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 2 (slow)

160 Celsius = 325 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 3 (moderately slow)

180 Celsius = 350 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 4 (moderate)

190 Celsius = 375 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 5 (moderately hot)

200 Celsius = 400 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 6 (hot)

230 Celsius = 450 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 7 (very hot)

250 Celsius = 500 Fahrenheit / Gas Mark 8-9 (very hot)
