We have used lnternatlonal1 5 mltablespoon measures. If you are using an Australian 20 ml tablespoon, the difference will not be noticeable for most recipes. However, for flour. cornflour or baking powder, subtract one teaspoon for each tablespoon specified. Cup Equivalents ''• cup = 60 ml = 125ml 1 cup =250m! 2 cups = 500 ml 4 cups = 1 litre 1/ cup 2
