Baking conversions

Remember to use cup measures designed for dry ingredients when you measure out flour, sugars, oats, etc. On the other hand, use a measuring cup designed for liquids for ingredients like milk, water, and anything that is, well, liquidy!

Flour (regular all-purpose and whole wheat)

I measure flour using the spoon-into-cup method, as opposed to the scoop-into-cup method. This means that you are not packing and compacting flour into the cup measure. Others may measure flour differently, but this is how I measure mine.

1 cup all-purpose flour = 125 grams
3/4 cup all-purpose flour = 94 grams
2/3 cup all-purpose flour = 83 grams
1/2 cup all-purpose flour = 63 grams
1/3 cup all-purpose flour = 42 grams
1/4 cup all-purpose flour = 31 grams

Sugars

Granulated sugar & brown sugar

Please note that I do not pack my brown sugar into the cup measurer. I spoon the sugar into the measurer.

1 cup granulated or brown sugar  =  200 grams
3/4 cup granulated or brown sugar = 150 grams
2/3 cup granulated or brown sugar = 133 grams
1/2 cup granulated or brown sugar = 100 grams
1/3 cup granulated or brown sugar = 67 grams
1/4 cup granulated or brown sugar = 50 grams

Icing sugar

I measure icing sugar the same way I measure flour, using the spoon-into-cup method, as opposed to the scoop-into-cup method. This means that you are not packing and compacting sugar into the cup measure. Others may measure icing sugar differently, but this is how I measure mine.

1 cup icing sugar =  125 grams
3/4 cup icing sugar = 94 grams
2/3 cup icing sugar = 83 grams
1/2 cup icing sugar =63 grams
1/3 cup icing sugar=42 grams
1/4 cup icing sugar =31 grams

Chocolate

Cocoa powder

I measure cocoa the same way I measure flour, using the spoon-into-cup method, as opposed to the scoop-into-cup method. This means that you are not packing and compacting cocoa into the cup measure. Others may measure cocoa powder differently, but this is how I measure mine.

1 cup cocoa powder =  100 grams
3/4 cup cocoa powder = 75 grams
2/3 cup cocoa powder = 67 grans
1/2 cup cocoa powder = 50 grams
1/3 cup cocoa powder = 33 grams
1/4 cup cocoa powder = 25 grams

Chocolate pistoles (specifically Cacao Barry brand, like this on Amazon)

1 cup chocolate pistoles =  175 grams
3/4 cup chocolate pistoles = 131 grams
2/3 cup chocolate pistoles = 117 grams
1/2 cup chocolate pistoles = 88 grams
1/3 cup chocolate pistole s= 58 grams
1/4 cup chocolate pistoles = 44 grams
