A Quick Guide for Cooks

This is just a guide only in helping you in the kitchen, it is only intended to put you closer to achieve the final finished dish.
Since you are the one in the kitchen you have to make the final decision on whether to increase or decrease or leave the quantities as is.


Weights, Measures and Proportions.

The following information was taken from a cook book for Australian housewives that predominately lived in the country.
The book is called “The Coronation Cookbook” by the Country Women's Association of NSW.
The articles in the book were provided predominately by country women. The edition that I have is the 1945 edition.
Though the information was gathered from other sources when the tables were created.


When using a normal teaspoon and tablespoon the following can apply:-
1 spoonful means a level spoonful
½ spoonful means a level spoonful divided lengthwise
¼ spoonful means a half of a ½ spoonful.

Older measures
1 breakfast tea cup equals ½ pint (Imp) 2 gills or 300ml
½ breakfast cup equals ¼ pint (Imp), 1 gill or 150ml.
1 Pint equals 20 fluid ounces or 568ml but is taken as 600ml.
1 pound weight equals 16 ounces or 454grams but is taken as 500grams.
1 ounce equals 28.35grams but is taken as 30grams.
1 fluid ounce equals 28.4 millilitres but is taken as 30 millilitres

Proportions of ingredients.

Add 1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda to each cup of golden syrup or treacle.

When the recipes says butter melted – measure the amount of butter required then melt the butter.

then take the measure of the butter.
