    350° Fahrenheit = 176° Celsius. If you're curious why America still uses Fahrenheit, watch our video to find out: bit.ly/2JAuXcN

  42. J. K.

    J. K.6 months ago

    For Lebkuchen I use 350°, since it's more cake than cookie. I candy the orange peel myself, because store bought is not as "orange-y". A lady told a friend who shared some of his from me with her: "They taste like Christmas!" I use honey, and cinnamon, clove and nutmeg with candied orange peel in the dough. After baking, a glaze of powdered sugar and lemon juice goes on top. Haven't had any complaints so far from my baking. My postings sometimes garner a few because I am a mix of salt and vinegar so to speak😉

  43. J. K.

    J. K.6 months ago

    I have 2 cookie recipes: one requires crisco because butter masks the flaver of the extract otherwise, and this one must be baked at 400°F The other, Chocolate chip cookies, is 375°F. I have never baked cookies at any lesser or greater temperatures. 350° F is for cakes. I began baking at age nine years of age; I am 59 now. Fifty years of baking experience here!😊

    how come when i was growing up most things you bake said pre-heat to 400 425 450 500 550 and then now most things are 350 or 325 or sometimes 375 with only a few things saying 425? how come beef meals used to always be 500 or 550 sometimes telling you to reduce temperature during cooking and now most instructions for beef meals/dishes say 350 or 425 or in that range and just leave the oven at one temperature during cooking?

    FlowChange 54tyr7 months ago

    350f sucks and burns everything, it's 350f not because it's the best, it's 350f because every recipe needs to be quick in order to make people happy which results in everything you bake being burnt 50% of the time. If someone reads "these cookies take 30 minutes to bake at 300f" they get fed up and ignore it, if the recipe says "350f for 15 minutes." they actually try baking it, even if it burns.

  85. The Noisy Spectator

    The Noisy Spectator7 months ago

    Easy Flow, you are ranting over something that is not worth it. 350 is a good rule of thumb because one number is easy to remember, and it can be applied to baking everything. If people were really that lazy, they would just come up with a way to microwave everything.

    My opinion is just as important as anyone else's, even if I don't persuade anyone else to agree with me! I speak from experience using both Celsius and Farenheight! What do _you_ think is a comfortable room temperature, in Celsius?

  95. Alessandro Salbego

    Alessandro Salbego7 months ago

    Interesting but as someone from a country that prodominatly (spelling RIP) uses Fahrenheit I'm not sure if it counts. I anyone from any other point in the globe agreed then maybe. By the way is the Babylonian system of base 60 not also too broad then. Them leaving us with 360 degrees and 60 minutes in an hour. It atleast feels to to. 60 is such a large number.

  96. The Noisy Spectator

    The Noisy Spectator7 months ago

    Yes, but I have still been exposed to the metric system enough to compare it to Fahrenheit. The Celsius scale is not as uncommon here as you would think from reading the comments here.
