2.5 centemetres per inch so that would mean 6 inch round. If it was the radius it would be a 12 inch round . What are you making? This may help us to figure it out.

re:cookware terminology help required

I'm going to be making sticky date toffee pudding for 2 people, I've adjusted the recipe as the recipe was to serve 6 and I plan on using ramekins instead of the 15 cm round / 9 cm tall ceramic casserole dish. My ramekins are 35cm around and 5 & 1/2 cm deep.
I'm planning on making two separate puddings. I'm hoping they'll make do, seeing as I've divided the recipe by 3, 6 ÷ 3 = 2, so it was fairly easy after converting 3/4 cup brown sugar into tablespoons using a conversion site as it equalled 12 tablespoons, 12 ÷ 3 = 4tbs. I got the recipe from 'Meal Times Made Easy' available from IMP in Australia.

I believe that a 15cm pan is the same as a 6 inch, round caserole dish. The measurment is the diameter of the pan.
