Don’t let the different measurements be an obstacle, when you want to switch between let’s say Danish and American recipes. Here are a few guidelines.
Teaspoon, tablespoon is the same in both Denmark and the US.
1 tsk. (teskefuld) = 1 teaspoon
1 spsk. (spiseskefuld) = 1 tablespoon
2.4 dl = approx. 1 cup
4,5 l (liter) = 1 gallon (ga)
0, 5 l. = 1 pint
1 l = approx. 1 quart (qt)
1 knivspids = 1 pinch
140 g = approx. 1 cup flour weight
200 g = approx. 1 cup sugar weight
225 g = approx. 1 cup butter weight
28 g = 1 ounce (oz)
454 g = 1 pound (lb) = 16 ounces
When using the oven, you must be aware that Denmark uses Celsius while the US uses Fahrenheit.
150-175º C = 300-325º F
175-200º C = 350-375º F
200-225ºC = 400-425º F
225-250ºC = 450-475º F
