Conversion tables

All these are approximate conversions, which have either been rounded up or down. In a few recipes, it has been necessary to modify them very slightly. Never mix metric and imperial measures in one recipe; stick to one system or the other.

All spoon measurements on this site are level, unless specified otherwise.

All butter is salted, unless specified otherwise.

All the recipes use large eggs, unless otherwise stated.

All recipes are tested using whole milk, unless specified otherwise.

Note: A pint isn’t always a pint: in British, Australian and often Canadian recipes you’ll see an imperial pint listed as 20 fluid ounces. American and some Canadian recipes use the the American pint measurement, which is 16 fluid ounces.
