Conversions

Measuring ingredients is one of the most important step in cooking; especially in baking,where precision counts. Using a digital kitchen scale is the best option while baking as it gives the exact measure each time you measure; whereas if you measure in cups,  it may vary every time when you shook the cup slightly, packed in the flour, levelled off the top etc.

To measure the flour or sugar, spoon flour/sugar from the container into the measuring cup lightly. Do not shake the cup or pack/press the flour. Level off the top (as shown in the picture below) using a flat knife or spatula.

Here, I had tried to measure all these ingredients on my own and then noted down . There might be slight difference here and there, but this is what I got while measuring and it's fine. I had baked cakes and cookies for months without kitchen scale using these conversions.



The measure I use:

3/4 cup        180ml
1/2 cup        125ml
