Baking Measurements and Ingredient Conversion Chart

Baking measurements, equivalents, and conversions can be confusing. Whether you’re a newbie or a fairly seasoned baker, sometimes measurements are not easy to remember.

Here is a compilation of common baking measurements and ingredient conversions to help you figure it all out.

Common Baking Ingredients in Grams and Cups

This baking conversion chart is a quick reference for grams and volume equivalencies for common baking ingredients. If you like to bake, I implore you to get a digital scale. You’ll be rewarded with more consistent results, less cleanup, and a streamlined process.

When it comes to baking, measuring by weight is much more consistent and accurate. Measuring by volume (e.g. cups) have many variables that can affect actual amounts.

The tradition of measuring in cups can ruin your baking outcome because volume measurements are prone to wide variations. Here are some examples:

  • A cup of flour can weigh anywhere between 110 and 155 grams. Fluffing the flour bag before measuring a cup gives you a lesser amount of flour.
  • 1 US cup is 240 ml while 1 UK cup is 250ml. A Japanese/ Korean cup is 200ml.
  • When a recipe says 1 cup of butter, how would you consistently and accurately fill a cup with solid butter each time you make it?

I have compiled a chart of baking ingredients weight chart to help in converting recipes from cups to grams. Arranged in alphabetical order:
