Weights & Measurements

This blog uses Australian weights and measurements.  As far as I know, the only difference (apart from the obvious metric/imperial conversion) is that our tablespoon is 20mL (4 teaspoons), whereas in the rest of the world a tablespoon is 15mL (3 teaspoons).  All of the recipes on this blog use tablespoons as 20mL.  If in doubt, convert here.

Pan measurements

Muffin pans
mini 30 mL 1 1/2 tbs
regular 1 80 mL 1/3 cup
regular 2 125 mL 1/2 cup
Texas 180 mL 3/4 cup
Cake pans
20 cm springform cake pan 8 inch
20 cm square cake pan 8 inch
23 cm springform cake pan 9 inch
25 cm springform 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.
