Weight & Measure Chart

Does your equipment measure up?

Use cup and spoon measures for dry and solid ingredients and a measuring jug for liquid ingredients. 

When measuring dry or solid ingredients, dip the cup or spoon measure into the food and lift out. Use the edge of a knife to scrape across the surface, removing excess ingredients so the surface is flat. When measuring liquids, place the jug onto a flat surface and bend down to check at eye level.

Pan measurements

Muffin Pans
mini30ml1 1/2 Tbsp.
regular 180ml1/3 cup
regular 2125ml1/2 cup
Texas180ml3/4 cup
Cake Pans
20cm spring form cake pan 8 inch
20cm square cake pan 8 inch
23cm spring form cake pan 9 inch
25cm spring form cake pan 10 inch

To check your muffin pan’s capacity, for a mini muffin pan pour 1 1/2 tablespoons (30ml) water into 1 hole in your pan. If the water comes right to the top (with none left over) it is 1 1/2 tablespoon capacity. Use the same method to measure regular or Texas muffin pans.

If using a fan-forced oven, your cooking time may be a little quicker, so start checking your food a little earlier
