I'm starting to post recipes from the excellent series of cookbooks put out by The Australian Women's Weekly. If you have any interest in these recipes at all, save this post. These are conversions from Ozzie to US and British measurements.

QUICK CONVERSION GUIDE:

Wherever you live in the world, you can use our recipes with the help of our easy-to-follow conversions for all your cooking needs. These conversions are approximate only. The difference between the exact and approximate conversions of liquid and dry measures amounts to only a teaspoon or two, and will not make any noticeable difference to your cooking results.

MEASURING EQUIPMENT:

The difference between measuring cups internationally is minimal within 2 or 3 teaspoons difference. (For the record, 1 Australian measuring cup will hold approximately 250ml.) The most accurate way of measuring dry ingredients is to weigh them. When measuring liquids use a clear glass or plastic jug with metric markings.

1 Teaspoon: 5ml 1 Tablespoon: 20ml NOTE: NZ, CANADA, USA AND UK ALL USE 15ml TABLESPOONS. ALL CUP AND SPOON MEASUREMENTS ARE LEVEL.

DRY MEASURES: Metric..Imperial 15 g.....⅒/2oz 30 g......1oz 60 g......2oz 90 g......3oz 125g.....4oz (¼ 1b) 155g.....5oz 185g.....6oz 220g.....7oz 250 g.....8oz (½ lb) 280g.....9oz 315g.....10oz 345g.....11oz 375 g.....12oz (¾ lb) 410g.....13oz 440g.....14oz 470g.....15oz 500 g.....16oz (1 lb) 750g.....24oz (1½ lb) 1kg......32oz (2 lb)

These equivalents are from various books in the Australian Women's Weekly series of cookbooks.
