Why use a Measurement Conversion chart?
I love cooking and I truly understand that cooking is an art. But Imma tell you something about baking. Baking is an entirely different beast when it comes to the culinary game. I could say it from my own experiences in baking. There are many cake recipes that I absolutely love. However, when I try to do it my own without checking the recipe, 9 out of 10 times, the cake came out disa–st–er.

This is so true for an unexpired newbie baker like me. Baking comes as like a science project than cooking. So I decided to create these Measurement Conversion charts for me and to all the amazing moms out there.
Dry ingredients VS Wet ingredients
Before measuring ingredients, we need to understand the difference between dry and wet ingredients. Dry ingredients are measured by weight while wet ingredients are measured by their volume.
What are considered as dry ingredients in cooking?
The answer is super broad in the spectrum, but some examples are:
Basically, the item is in its powder form is considered a dry ingredient. But there are always exemptions. Some items are in semi-liquid forms. That’s why most of the time, the recipe card will specifically mention the item has to be measured by cup.
To guide you, read the recipe card thoroughly. And your baking will come out amazing! We suggest you use a digital kitchen scale to get your dry ingredient’s weight. It is handy and more accurate that way.
Basic Measurement Conversion Chart for Wet ingredients
Before you measure anything, we need the proper tools to do the job. First, we need Measuring cups and Measuring spoons. These are essentials for the liquid items.
The measurement from the largest to smallest is Gallon->Quart->Pints->Cups->Table Spoon->Tea Spoon.
Conversion in a Gallon:
- A gallon has 128 fluid Ounces.
- A gallon is equal to 4 quarts
- A gallon is equal to 8 pints
- A gallon has 16 cups
Conversion in a Quart:
- A quart is equal to 32 Ounces
- A quart has 4 Cups
- A quart has 64 Table Spoons
- A quart has 0.95 Liter
Conversion in a Pint:
- A pint is equal to 16 Ounces
- A pint has 2 Cups
- A pint has 32 Table Spoons

If you can memorize the conversion table, good for you! But for some who needs more assistance, here you can use the Cooking Recipe Converter to streamline the process. Plus, this Measurement Conversion Chart can help you out.
Tip: I used to print the Measurement Conversion Chart out and paste it inside my cabinet so when I need to reach the ingredients, I would able to see it there.
I have improved my baking skill by using the measurement tools correctly. Here, let’s see how my cheese cake turned out. I hope this actually help you on the baking journey as well.
