Cups to Grams Converter for Baking Ingredients

Convert Cups to Grams
Here in the UK, we like to use our weighing scales, and we like grams. It may be easier to just "scoop and go" using the cup measuring method like they do in America, but we just don't "do" that. We English prefer accuracy. So, for your convenience, here are some common baking ingredients converted from cups to grams. Due to the inaccurate nature of cups, it's impossible to get an exact conversion as it totally depends on how compacted the ingredients are into the cups, but here are the averages.

  2. What lovely recipes! I can't wait to try some. In defense of American bakers though, let me just say that there are many among us who believe in weights on a properly calibrated scale vs. unpredictable volumetric measurements that can fluctuate wildly with humidity or packing methods. If you haven't had the delight, check out BraveTart's blog. She's brilliant, and very much the scale advocate. Again, so nice to have found you (via YouMustBeThisTallToRide's blog) and I look forward to trying many of your yummy recipes! Cheers!
