Conversion Table for Cooking and Baking

Share the love!

What do you do when you encounter a recipe using weight measurements, but you don’t have a scale? Or vice versa? How many grams are in a cup anyway?

We’ve all been there.

Convert Volume to Weight

Welcome to my handy conversion table, designed to make your time in the kitchen easier. This table provides conversions from cups to grams for a variety of common cooking and baking ingredients. Whether you’re trying to translate a recipe or just curious about measurements, this guide can help you navigate your culinary journey with precision.

To learn more about my thoughts on measuring ingredients by weight instead of volume, check out my blog post here!

These conversions were all calculated by hand, by me, in my home kitchen. If you encounter any discrepancies, or if you notice an ingredient is missing from this table, please let me know in the comments.
