Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Dessertspoon English measurment

Postby Nanalovescooking » Tue Oct 26, 2010 3:44 am

I have several English cookbooks. Some of the recipes say to add, for instance; 1 dessertspoon of sugar. I have both a tablespoon and a dessertspoon (not measuring spoons) that I brought back from England some years back, but cannot remember which one I should use in the recipes asking me to add a dessertspoon of something. I have looked on the internet, but have found no clear answer.
Thank you for your help with this.
