You have saved my life……. I was so delighted to come across your website when converting US, in to UK measurements. etc. It is so difficult to come across someone from England putting stuff on line, as its all American.

I have now printed it all off, and have attached it to a book, for future reference.

Like you in more ways than one, I have Psoriasis arthritis amongst other thing,s and have had to give up work. I always love baking cakes, and have done so for many years, mainly for my family. I have decided in the new year to take it up more as a hobby, and start decorating cakes for family and friends, and see where it leads in the future.

Thank you once again.
Paula 🙂

I have picked up an American recipe and have used ur convertion table before and found it a great help so thank you for that.
Although this new recipe has got me a little confused as it has the letter ‘T’ next to a measurement of milk all the others are in cups or tsp can you help me by letting me know what measurement it stands for please x

I’m working on individual ingredient conversions (which is taking a while to complete because of the massive amount of ingredients!)

I guess you’ll be sad to hear that The Great British Bake Off is no more. The show was purchased by a different channel here in the UK, and BBC creating another. So Paul and Mary (and presenters) have parted ways sadly. Enjoy your recipe books, happy baking.

They, of course, have UK measurements and oven settings. After looking at several sites for conversion to US equivalents, I was more confused than ever! Then I found your site. Thank you SO MUCH for an easy to understand, PRINTABLE chart that will allow me to try my hand at some British Baking!!

I know it must be a struggle for you right now with the culture and ingredient differences, so if you have any questions about any ingredients or anything not listed here, feel free to contact me and I’ll do my best to help.

I can work in both cups (volume) and weight. They sell the measuring cups here too should you need them. However, if I were you, and you still have recipes that work in cup measurements, I’d stick with using the cups for them. It’s a big hassle to convert everything and if I didn’t blog my recipes, I wouldn’t bother to convert. Saying that, weight measurements are more accurate (us Brits are all for perfection, eh?) so for those I’d get a scale.

You can enjoy the best of both worlds here. Have fun!

This is so helpful. I have favorite recipes from home that I struggle to convert. And i don’t know what some ingredients are in UK recipes. I’m trying to convert to metric but it’s not easy. Thanks for this!
