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.

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.

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! Howcome the measurement in your chart for a 1/2 cup of butter which is 120 grams isn’t equal to 240 grams for 1 cup? Isn’t it just has to be doubled or is there any rule or formula i might have missed? Please help me. Thank you!

Hi Gemma! How is one cup of flour only 150 grams when it says on our chart that it is 40g for 1/4 cup? Isn’t a cup of flour four parts of 1/4 cup flour? Thanks!

I have a question – I’ve been on several sites for conversion numbers and have found fairly major differences – for ex. all-purpose flour – one site says 125 g, another 145g, 150g on this one. The variance for other ingredients is the same. Why the differences? I know with some recipes 20g is a lot. Thank you.

Gemma, I made your 15 min.banana cream pie yesterday and my family devoured it. Best EVER! Thank you. My question is can I make it and use cupcake liners with either the Nilla wafers crumbs OR just the whole cookie as the base for the filling? I would fill them appropriately and top with whipped cream. I need several for a gathering this summer.

Thank you ever so much for making this chart. I have always done my baking by volume and not by weight. Then my friend gave me a lot of her recipes… they were all by weight! Now I can try many of them without having to google the conversions.

Are the cups in this chart metric or imperial cups? US cups are different to UK or Australian cups

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!
