Weight Conversion Chart For Baking Ingredients

Hi Bold Bakers!

Welcome to my Bold Baking Bootcamp! In this limited series we will cover Baking 101, like conversions and substitutions in baking. In this first episode we are starting out with a weight conversions for baking ingredients.

Watch the Weight Conversion Chart Video Below

Now you tune in from all over the world to watch and make my recipes. However, you don’t all use the same weight conversions. Some countries like Ireland use grams and ounces and in the U.S. we use cups.

Growing up in Ireland, I couldn’t make a recipe if it used cups as the measurement. So it is important to me that no matter where you live or what metric you use, you can make my recipes.

I created this Free Downloadable Baking Conversion Chart that converts all of the basic baking ingredients from cups to grams and ounces.

IMPORTANT NOTES: These measurements are based on my learning and experience. You might notice other charts vary and that can be for multiple reasons (e.g. different flours weigh different amounts or you scoop rather than fill your measuring cup).  I measure each 1 oz as 30g, not 28g. As long as you consistently use my chart for all of the ingredients your recipe will work out great.

Get my Weight Conversion Chart for Baking so you can convert measurements for any recipe!

Now, take for instance flour. 1 cup is equal to 5oz or 150g. However 1 cup of sugar is equal to 8oz or 240g. You will see that the same 1 cup measurement doesn’t always equal the same in grams and ounces. The reason is that 1 cup of sugar isn’t the same weight as flour because sugar is heavier than flour.

You will see that all ingredients are different weights but if you use my chart you can easily see how to convert weights including liquids in any recipe. Liquid is measured in milliliters and fluid ounces.

If you know anyone who would like this chart then share this weight conversion table with them. It will come in really handy when you come across an amazing recipe but it’s in cups or another measurement.

If you like this conversion chart and find it helpful I also have an Egg Substitutes Chart that easily shows you how to substitute eggs in any recipe using regular ingredients like bananas, apple sauce and buttermilk.

Finally, a way to convert all those goofy recipes from grams back to real units – cups and spoons. Seriously, now I can try some of these recipes and get the measurements correct – keep the metric system our of baking!

Thanks for this Conversion chart Gemma, I live in Wales UK, so still use the ounces and grams as you did in Ireland.
I am loving all your recipes and can’t wait for your book to arrive!

Hi,
I live in Australia and we don’t have marshmallow creme, cool whip or Graham crackers. So what can I use to replace these ingredients in recipes please as I have some really great ones I want to make.
Thank you

THANK YOU Gemma for this. I’m forever looking up conversions as I only bake with a scale. So often if I’m feeling lazy I dismiss a North American recipe because it’s too much work converting. And those are the norm here, as I’m in Canada.
This will be a lifesaver. I’ll be laminating it and putting it under my scale.
You are the hero of the hour. 🙂

Hi Gemma,
Liquid ingredients would include water, milk, buttermilk and oil? I have seen a recipe that calls for 165 grams of eggs, how confusing is that? Isn’t it just easier to give the total count of eggs? Do people actually weigh eggs after cracking them?

Hey, Gemma, I’m trying to convert a recipe from Imperial (cups)into grams so that I can make ahead of the ingredients. I do this with my corn fritter recipe….the dry into baggies ahead of time so that when I have my wet ingredients I can make it up.
The ingredients in question are:
Oats/almonds(slivered)/sesame seeds/raisins/butter/ liquid honey.
Respond to me as soon as you can be appreciated. This comes from a 30+yr old recipe I just recently discovered thinking if lost it and my daughter would like to do it this weekend with me.????
