Cooking and Baking Conversions can be difficult to remember. How many cups in a quart? How many Tablespoons in a cup? How many teaspoons in a Tablespoon? Fahrenheit to Celsius, Imperial to Metric and more. We're here to help you out and included a few printables for you to print for easy reference. Maybe you want to make a triple batch of something, or a ¼ batch. Knowing kitchen math will help you know how to get accurate measurements.

Metric to Imperial and vice versa conversions
Maybe you live in America and have a great recipe from the Great British Baking Show that you want to try, but don't have a scale. These conversions can be tricky since in the Metric system they go by weight for measurements, and the Imperial system is measured in volume. Weight allows for more accuracy, but volume allows for more ease.
There are 140 grams in a cup of flour
There are 150 grams in a cup of sugar.
There are 5 milliliters in a teaspoon.
There are 15 milliliters in a Tablespoon.
There are 240 milliliters in a cup.
There are 34 ounces in a liter.
There are 4 ¼ oz in one cup of flour.
350 degrees Fahrenheit = 180 degrees Celsius.
375 degrees Fahrenheit = 190 degrees Celsius.
400 degrees Fahrenheit = 205 degrees Celsius.
425 degrees Fahrenheit = 220 degrees Celsius.
450 degrees Fahrenheit = 230 degrees Celsius.
