Conversion/Measuring

Here is some useful conversion stuff :

ounces to grams   multiply by 28.35
cups to litres         multiply by 0.24


BUTTER and other solid fats
1 tbs  - 1/8 stick    - 15g      -   1/2 ounce
8 tbs     1 stick         115g

FLOUR
1 TBS - 8.75g  - 1/4 oz
1/4 Cup  - 4 tbs - 35g   -   1 1/4 oz

SUGAR
1 teaspoon - 5g - 1/6 oz
1 tbs - 15g - 1/2 oz
1/4 Cup (4tbs) - 60g - 1 3/4 oz

BROWN SUGAR
1 1/2 Cup = 450g

CONFECTIONERS SUGAR
4 CUPS= 450g




Volume
1 cup = 240 mL (milliliter)
1/2 cup = 120 mL
1/3 cup = 80 mL
1/4 cup = 60 mL = 4 tablespoons
1 tablespoon = 15 mL (= une cuillérée à soupe or cs in French) = 3 teaspoons
1 teaspoon = 5 mL (= une cuillérée à café or cc in French)
1 fluid ounce = 30 mL
1 US quart = 0.946 liter ~=1 liter

Weight
1 ounce = 28 grams
1 pound = 16 ounces = 454 grams

Length
1 inch = 2.54 centimeters
1 foot = 12 inches = 30 centimeters

Temperature
400° F = 200° C = gas mark (France) 7
350° F = 180° C = gas mark (France) 6
300° F = 150° C = gas mark (France) 5
(See equivalents for UK gas marks.)
Volume-to-weight conversions
Note: Since the volume measurement of an ingredient depends on how you pack the measuring cup/spoon and on the ingredient itself (how it is cut, its density, its water content), the volume-to-weight conversions are not absolute: they are simply a reflection of my own experience.
