Conversion Chart – Recipes Conversion

Conversion Chart – Recipes Conversion

Here in Germany our recipe ingredients are measured by weight. In case you do not own a kitchen scale, I have prepared a conversion chart for you guys. You can now convert untis of weight (grams) to units of volume (tablespoons, teaspoons). Oven temperatures are different too, so you get the information on that as well.

I am totally in love with sweet, lovely, playful measuring cups and measuring spoons. Take a look here on smallburst.com, here, here AND here some cute cupcake ones. There are no limits and it is so much more fun to bake. :-)
