Everything You Need to Know About Baking at Fahrenheit 350° to Celsius

It's Sweet to Share!

The simple answer for converting Fahrenheit 350° to Celsius is 180, but if you want to get super technical, everything it takes to convert Fahrenheit 350° to Celsius one algebraic equation. 

T°(°C) = (T(°F) – 32) × 5/9 

Take the temperature in Fahrenheit, then subtract 32. Multiply the answer by 5 and then divide the product by 9.

It looks like this. (350°F – 32) × 5/9 = 176.667°C

And that is how you convert
Fahrenheit 350° to Celsius!

Did you know that before the year 1919 everything was baked in a wood stove based on how black flour got when you tossed it onto the coals. 1919 was the year of ‘scientific cooking’. 

Now we just push a button and put the goodies in the oven until the timer rings! 

But why should you cook at Fahrenheit 350°, or Celsius 180? The simple answer is magic, but if you want to get super technical, it’s because of the maillard reaction

Or in Other Words: Caramelization

When the temperature hits Fahrenheit 240°, or Celsius 107°, the proteins and sugars in the food break down and continue to have a chemical reaction as the temperature rises. When the temperature drops they come back together to create a new concoction. 

Think Cookie Dough Turning Into a Cookie 

At Fahrenheit 350° and even more specifically Fahrenheit 356°, the sugars start to caramelize. The moisture evaporates, the juices start to leak out, the fat renders, mixtures start to bubble and boil and what used to be just a handful of ingredients now becomes something your senses are begging for. 

So while Fahrenheit 350°, or Celsius 180° is the magic number, minor fluctuations will create the variety of delicious recipes you love. 

Breads, muffins and pastries need a higher temperature during baking so that they can achieve the highest rise while steam escapes, and baking cookies at Fahrenheit 375° will develop an exterior crunch and softer center.
