US/UK/metric conversions

1 pinch = less than 1/8 tsp.

1 dash = 3 drops to 1/2 tsp.

3 tsp = 1 TBSP = 1/2 oz.

2 TBSP = 1 oz.

1 cup = 250 mls

1 tablespoon = 20 mls

1 teaspoon = 5 mls

1 pound (US) = 454 grams = 16 oz.

1 kg = 2.2 lbs.

General Conversion Tables

standard cup | tablespoon | teaspoon

Canada 250ml 15ml 5ml

Australia 250ml 20ml 5ml

New Zealand 250ml 15ml 5ml

UK 250ml 15ml 5ml


1 ounce = 28.4 g (can usually be rounded to 25 or 30)

1 pound = 454 g= 16 oz.

1 kg = 2.2 pounds

US Liquid Measurements

1 liter = 1.057 quarts

2.1 pints

1 quart = 0.95 liter

1 gallon= 3.8 liters

1/8 cup = 2 tablespoons

1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons

1/3 " = 0.8 dl

1/2 " = 1.2 dl

2/3 " = 1.6 dl

3/4 " = 1.75 dl

7/8 " = 2.1 dl

1 cup = 2.4 dl

1 dl = 2/5 cup = 6 to 7 tablespoons


1 UK pint is about 6 dl

1 UK liquid oz is 0.96 US liquid oz.

A "stick" of butter or margarine weighs 4 oz and is 1/2 cup US.

Each 1/4 cup or half stick butter or margarine in US recipes weighs about 50 g.

There are 8 tablespoons in 1/4 pound butter

Substitutions and Equivalents:


US all-purpose flour and UK plain-flour can be substituted for one another without adjustment. US cake flour is lighter than these. It is not used much anymore, but if it does come up, you can substitute all-pupose/plain flour by removing three tablespoons per cup of flour and replacing it with corn starch or potato flour.

Self-raising flour contains 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt for each cup of flour.

US whole wheat flour is interchangeable with UK wholemeal flour.

Leavening Agents

Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. It must be mixed with acidic ingredients to work.

Baking powder contains baking soda and a powdered acid, so it can work without other acidic ingredients.

1 pkg. of active dry yeast = 7 grams = 1/4 oz. = 1 cube compressed yeast

Canned milk

evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk both come in cans, both are thick and a weird color... but are not the same thing. Sweetened condensed milk is, as the name implies, mixed with sugar or another sweetener already. It isn't found everywhere, but this recipe makes a good, quick substitute: Mix 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons dry (powdered) milk and 1/2 cup warm water. When mixed, add 3/4 cup granulated sugar.


UK corn flour is the same as US cornstarch. Potato flour, despite its name, is a starch, and cannot be substituted for regular flour. It often can be substituted for corn starch and vice versa.

Cornmeal or polenta is not the same thing as cornstarch or corn flour! What one can buy labelled `polenta' really looks no different to cornmeal though. Polenta is commonly used to describe cornmeal porridge but may also be used to mean plain cornmeal. Beware.

If you don't have cornstarch/corn flour, you can use twice the amount of all-purpose flour. However, unless whatever you're adding it to is allowed to boil, the result will taste starchy.

Sugar and other sweeteners

UK castor/caster sugar is somewhat finer than US granulated sugar. There is a product in the US called superfine sugar, which is about the same as UK castor/caster sugar.

Usually, you can use granulated sugar in recipes calling for castor/caster sugar and vice versa. As usual, give the recipe a trial run with the substitute some time when it doesn't need to be perfect.

Corn syrup is common in the US but not always elsewhere. Sugar (golden) syrup can be substituted. Corn syrup comes in two flavours - dark and light.

Light corn syrup is just sweet, dark has a mild molasses flavour. A common US brand is Karo.

Golden syrup is a thick, golden brown byproduct of cane sugar refining. The taste is mostly sweet, although there is a slight acidic, metallic component. If desperate, a plain sugar syrup may be a possible substitute, boil 2 parts sugar, 1 part water.


Shortening is solid, white fat made from hydrogenated vegetable oil. (A popular brand name is Crisco, and many people call all shortening Crisco.) It is common in the US, tougher to find in some other parts of the globe.

Copha is a solid fat derived from coconuts, it is fairly saturated and used in recipes where it is melted, combined with other ingredients and left to set.

Lard can be successfully substituted in some recipes, for example it makes very flaky pastry.

Deep frying requires fats/oils with heat-tolerant properties. Butter and margarine, for example, are right out, as are lard and olive oil. Corn and peanut oils are both good.


If you don't have unsweetened Baking Chocolate, substitute three tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder plus one tablespoon of fat (preferably oil) for each one ounce square.

US dark chocolate is the same as UK plain chocolate, that is, the darkest and least sweet of the chocolates intended for eating (also called bittersweet).

What is called milk chocolate in the UK is called milk chocolate in the US, too, but many people simply refer to it as "chocolate". The stuff called "semi-sweet chocolate"; by some folks is the US dark or UK plain.

"Bitter chocolat" is, apparently, the UK term for high quality plain chocolate. Some manufacturers apparently distinguish between "sweet dark," "semi-sweet" and "bittersweet" (Sarotti is one), but they seem to be minor variations on a theme.

Chocolate Chips are not necessarily a substitute for bar chocolates, because the chips have something added to them to slow down melting.

Buttermilk/Cultured Milk

If a recipe calls for buttermilk or cultured milk, you can make sour milk as a substitute. For each cup you need, take one tablespoon of vinegar or lemonjuice, then add enough milk to make one cup. Don't stir. Let it stand for five minutes before using.
