Using Google/Bing to Convert Recipe Measurements – No Allergen Food
I like to make recipes in slightly nonstandard ways. I may double, triple or half a recipe. Sometimes I will keep adding to a recipe and tasting it until it is right. Other people seem to do this as well. This leads to recipes which ask you to put in 8 tablespoons of sugar or something equally strange.
Now that we have the internet we are also more likely to have measurements in Milliliters (ML) when I find a recipe from outside the U.S. Yes, I can dig out some books and do some calculations. But there is a better way if you have access to the internet.
Try the following search in Google or Bing:
8 tablespoons in cups
You should see something like this:
So now I know that 8 tablespoons is 0.5 cups or half a cup.
If I click on the 0.5 I can type over it and change it to be 1/3 cup. When I do this it instantly updates the number of tablespoons to match:
But I can also play with this. The little up and down arrows between the tbsp. and the US cup above is a drop down. I can change this to be in Milliliters:
I will let you play with this to your heart’s content. Have fun!
