Measurement – Yogurt Cake

Measurement
14.3 Grams, ½ ounces, 3 teaspoons, 15 millilitres, ¼ cups…
Who would have thought that cooking would sometimes require a degree in mathematics?

For some people, cooking is considered to be a universal language where everybody gathers for the love of food… until the time comes to debate about the best way to weigh chocolate chips.

Although every kitchen around the world has a wooden spoon and pan, it’s another story to open a cookbook without a calculator and an Internet connection and make sure to use the proper mass of flour or chicken.

Sometimes the success of a diner may just hold in the balance of what Miss Cup, Mister Teaspoon or Mrs Gram tell us… as long as we understand their language! Why do we make our lives so difficult? That is the question…

Until you find the answer, why not try the following recipe that uses… yogurt pots as a measurement unit.
Yes, yet another unit to add to your ever-growing list of measurements, but at least it’s universal!
