There are plenty of recipes out there that require you to use a specific cup size for a baking dish, but that don't tell you what that baking dish is in traditional measurements. Well, baking dish conversions like this are actually fairly easy to do if you follow this simple guideline.

This guide is broken up into two different sections. The first section deals with the cup size, and then will list the dimensions of the pans. The second section will be dealing with the dimensions, and cup sizes, of specialized baking pans and dishes. Use whatever section is most beneficial to you,
