    Hi all,

    I'm translating a recipe into English and wondered how many teaspoons of baking powder are in a sachet?

    I would put sachet, but as far as I'm aware, we tend to use teaspoons rather than sachets. I've read that it might be 2, but can anyone confirm?

    Thanks!

    A sachet of French Levure chimique usually contains 10 grams of baking powder, the quantity needed for 500 grams of flour.

    Wow, thanks to everyone that went away and measured a sachet, I hope you make something good with it!

    So that's either 2 teaspoons or, more precisely, 3 level teaspoons.

    Thanks again,

    Hi petit1

    I think a coffee spoon is slightly smaller than a teaspoon,

    Either way I've found this site which equates 1 teaspoon to 5g of baking powder, which makes 2 teaspoons per sachet (at 10-11g per sachet).

    It's usually either teaspoons or desert spoons in BE.
