Baking Measurements and Ingredient Conversion Chart

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.

Liquid Measurements Conversion Chart

8 fluid ounces = 1 cup = 1/2 pint = 1/4 quart
16 fluid ounces = 2 cups = 1 pint = 1/2 quart
32 fluid ounces = 4 cups = 2 pints = 1 quart = 1/4 gallon
128 fluid ounces = 16 cups = 8 pints = 4 quarts = 1 gallon

Common Baking Ingredients in Grams and Cups

2 kinds of measuring cups (the silver cup claims 1 cup is 237ml and the gold cup says 1 cup is 250ml). After filling both with water right up to the top, I got the same gram measurement of 227g. This is why cups are not accurate at all! It is best to measure by density (grams) rather than measuring by volume (ml 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:

  1. Are you sure 1C of Water is 227g? Could you explain, as you say 1UK cup is 250ml, and 1US is 240ml. I’ve always used water to check my scales are accurate, and allowed 1 x 250ml Cup of water to weigh 250g.

    1. If you would look at the new photo in the body of this article, you would see that I both have 2 measuring cups: one indicates 1 cup is equal to 237ml (the US customary versus 240ml for US legal) while the other cup says 1 cup is equal 250ml. However, when I both fill these cups with water, I got the same weight of 227g. I am also curious that yours is 250g…could it be that the actual vessel (which is the cup) that you are using is slightly bigger? That is why I don’t like using cups, they are so inaccurate and confusing.
