Last year Lorna sent a message out on twitter urgently needing to know about how many mls in a tablespoon. She was in the middle of a recipe and needed an answer, as you can imagine, asap. I along with others came to the rescue.
When we met up at a meeting a while later she suggested I put it up as a handy tip for others. So thanks to Lorna here are my quick tips on this.
1 tablespoon = 15ml = 3 teaspoons
1 dessertspoon = 10 ml
1 teaspoon = 5ml
So when a recipe asks for say 1/2 a tablespoon then it’s 1 + 1/2 teaspoons or 7.5ml. You can have lots of fun changing around the mls or tablespoons to suit your norm.
Remember to use proper measuring spoons though. Also some measuring spoons have the conversion on them so that’ll save you remembering.
Enjoy & have fun cooking!
