Fast2eat Recipes Conversion Tables

Weights can vary considerably depending on the method used to measure. The values here are calculated according to the Dip & sweep (also called scoop & level) method, where we dip the cup or measuring spoon into the flour to scoop it up and then without shaking or tapping sweep of the excess with the back of a knife or a spatula to level it.

Note: Since the volume measurement of an ingredient depends on how you pack the measuring cup/spoon and on the ingredient itself (how it is cut, its density, its water content), the volume-to-weight conversions are not absolute.

Because actual drinking cups may differ greatly from the size of this unit, we should usually use a standard Measuring Cup and Spoon Set and also a bigger liquid Measuring Set instead.

Conversion for 58grams of whey powder
Thank you

I appreciate your comment and I will prepare a new table for “Protein Powder”.
Just quick answering your question: 1/2 Cup Whey Protein Powder = 48g
So for 58-60g of Whey Protein Powder I would use 1/2 cup (48g) + 1 tbsp (12g).
Hope it helps.

can you please do this for meringue powder

Hello Christine,

  • 2 teaspoons of meringue powder (6g/0.211644oz) + 2 tablespoons water = 1 egg white.
  • One 8oz (226g) container is about 75 teaspoons or 25 tablespoons.
  • While replacing meringue powder with powdered eggs always substitute 1 tbsp of meringue powder with 2 tbsp of powdered eggs. Do not alter the quantity of the water and proceed with the recipe in the usual way.
  • For one 8″ pie
    9 level tbsps meringue powder
    5 tbsps. warm water
    dash of flavouring (optional)
    For larger quantity
    454g (1lb) of meringue powder
    284ml (10oz) warm water
    Place meringue powder and water in a bowl. Stir until dissolved then whip at high speed until desired peak is obtained (approximately 7 minutes).
    Royal Icing:
    1 cup (1/2 lb) meringue powder
    3 1/2 cups (1 1/4 lbs) icing sugar lightly packed lump free
    140ml (5oz) hot tap water (100-120 °F)
    Pinch of cream of tartar (optional)
    Blend meringue powder and water at low speed for 1 minute. Blend for 4-7 minutes at high speed until thick, soft peaks form.
    Gradually blend in icing sugar (and cream of tartar if desired) while mixing at low speed. Keep icing covered with a damp cloth while using. Store in an airtight container, no need to refrigerate. Reblend at low speed before use.
    Note: Keep all utensils completely grease-free for proper icing consistency.
    Yield: 4 cups.
    **For stiffer icing, use less water.

    Hope it helps.
