Measuring Conversions and Equivalents


Baking Equivalents

**UPDATED!

We have all been there.  Our favorite recipes in equivalents that need to be converted.  Now I want you to enjoy your favorite recipes using these baking equivalents.  From metric to US equivalents such as weight and volume.  Also a chart on temperature conversions with handy formulas.  Check out the links below for more on equivalents and conversions.

 Temperature Conversions

The formulas:
F = [º C x 9) / 5] + 32 
Celsius = [(° F – 32) * 5] / 9
