Translating Recipes This page is to help in metric and standard measurement. Thanks go to my sister Susan for sending me this information! If you have anything to add on measurements please let me know and if you find any mistakes I will forward them to my sister. To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit: multiply by 9, divide that by 5, and then add 32 to get the Fahrenheit equivalent. From Celsius to Fahrenheit: Subtract 32, then multiply that number by 5, and divide by 9 to get the Celsius equivalent. To go from inches to centimeters: multiply the inches by 2.54 to get centimeters. To get centimeters into inches: multiply the centimeters by 0.39 to get inches. Here is a general measurement: Baking powder 1 tsp. = 3.65 grams Butter 1 cup = 224 grams Cinnamon 1 tsp = 1.1 grams Cooking oil 1 cup = 210 grams Cornmeal 1 cup = 152 grams Flour 1 cup sifted = 115 grams Milk 1 cup = 244 grams Milk 1 quart = 976 grams Pecans 1 cup chopped = 120 grams Salt 1 tsp. = 6 grams Sugar 1 Tbs. = 12.5 grams Sugar 1 cup = 200 grams Vanilla 1 tsp. = 5 grams Walnuts 1 cup chopped = 124 grams Back to Belgian Recipes and Traditions Milliliters to Teaspoon, Tablespoon and Cups (Rounded off) 1 ml. = 1/4 tsp. 2 ml = 1/2 tsp. 5 ml = 1 tsp. 7 ml = 1 1/2 tsp. 10 ml = 2 tsp. 15 ml = 1 tbs. 30 ml = 1 fl. oz. or 2 tbs. 45 ml = 3 tbs. 50 ml = 3 tbs. 60 ml = 1/4 cup 75 ml = 1/3 cup 125 ml = 1/2 cup 200 ml = 3/4 cup 250 ml = 1 cup 375 ml = 1 1/2 cups 500 ml = 2 cups 750 ml = 3 cups 875 ml = 3 1/2 cups .95 liters = 1 quart 1 liters = 1 quart + 1/4 cup 3.8 liters = 1 gallon These equivalents are rounded off. They're fine for cooking, but I wouldn't try to do industrial chemistry with them! One milliliter equals .004 cup. To compute other rounded milliliter equivalents, multiply .004 by the number of milliliters, and the answer is the number of cups you need. Cups/Quarts/Gallons to Milliliters 1/2 cup = 118 ml. 1 cups = 236 ml. 1 3/4 cups = 413 ml. 2 cups (1 pint) = 472 ml. 4 cups (1 quart)= 946 ml. 4 quarts (1 gallon) = 3785 ml. U.S. to Metric Pan Sizes 8 x 1 1/2 inches = 20 x 4 cm. 9 x 1 1/2 inches = 23 x 4 cm. 13 x 9 x 3 inches = 33 x 23 x 5 cm. 9 x 5 x 3 inches = 23 x 12.5 x 5 cm.
