In North America, most home bakers are used to using measuring cups to measure out ingredients for baking, whether dry ingredients, or wet ingredients. In Europe and other parts of the world, it's more common to weigh ingredients and use a kitchen scale. To convert recipes from weights to volumes, or from metric units to imperial units, you will need to get comfortable with all the ways we express and abbreviate volumes.

Get familiar with the units of measure and their abbreviations

Some recipe writers will spell out the units of measure in their recipe, as grams and ounces, for example, while others may abbreviate them to g and oz. Here's a rundown of the commonly used abbreviations for the units of measure used in baking.

Volume units

In baking, volumes are usually expressed with the following units and abbreviations:

  • teaspoon is abbreviated to teaspoon or sometimes t
  • tablespoon is abbreviated to tablespoon or sometimes T
  • cups aren't usually abbreviated but you may see them written as C or c
  • millilitre is abbreviated to mL
  • litre is abbreviated to L
  • fluid ounces are abbreviated to fl oz

Basic baking conversions to remember for volumes

While teaspoons and tablespoons are common in many countries, they aren't common everywhere. Furthermore, 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon can mean different volumes, depending on the location, though commonly, the conversions for volumes are as follows:

(Video) Baking and Kitchen Conversion Chart / Baking Measurements Grams , Cup , Tsp , Tbsp , ML , L , Oz etc

  • 2.5 mL is ½ tsp
  • 5 mL is 1 tsp
  • 15 mL is 1 tablespoon (in most countries)
  • 20 mL is 1 tablespoon (in Australia)
  • 60 mL is ¼ cup
  • 80 mL is ⅓ cup
  • 125 mL is ½ cup
  • 180 mL is ¾ cup
  • 160 mL is ⅔ cup
  • 250 mL is 1 cup
  • 8 fl oz is 250 mL or 1 cup
  • 32 fl oz is 1 L

Weight units

Bakers express weights using the following units and abbreviations:

  • ounces are abbreviated to oz
  • grams are abbreviated to g
  • kilograms are abbreviated to kg
  • pounds are abbreviated to lb

Conversions for imperial to metric weights

  • 1 lb is equivalent to 16 oz or 454 g
  • 2-¼ lb is equal to 1 kg
  • 1000 g is equal to 1 kg

Remember that when you measure out dry ingredients, use cup measures designed for dry ingredients (like these on Amazon), like flour, sugars, oats, etc. On the other hand, use a measuring cup designed for liquids (like this one onAmazon) when you need to measure ingredients like milk, water, and anything that is fluid!

While both tools measure volumes, it's a lot easier to fill dry measuring cups with dry ingredients and level them by running the back of a knife across. And liquid measuring cups make filling, pouring, and walking around a lot less messy. No spills! Trust me! For nut butters, I use dry measuring cups. Use the tool that you are most comfortable with.

For small quantities of ingredients, never weigh them unless you have a scale that can handle small weights of less than 10 grams. So for ingredients like baking soda, baking powder, and salt, use tablespoons and teaspoons, not your kitchen scale.

If you are unsure, consult this guide to measuring baking ingredients so you use the tools you have properly!

Here are the tools you need to measure ingredients in your kitchen:

  • Dry measuring cups: I like heavy duty stainless steel dry measuring cups that sit flat on the counter so that I can spoon ingredients into them easily without the risk of them tipping over. I recommend this OXO set of dry measuring cups from Amazon, which hold together with a magnet.
  • Set of measuring spoons: I own this stainless steel set that you can find on Amazon. The spoons fit in most jars.
  • Liquid measuring cups: I like this set of glass Pyrex measuring cups that you can find on Amazon. Ideally, you should have a 1 cup liquid measuring cup and a 2 cup liquid measuring cup. I also have a 4 cup measuring cup, which is more useful for cooking than baking (like if you have to measure large cups of stock or water for soups and stews). Oxo makes a set of neat liquid measuring cups that are easy to read from above. If you have trouble bending down to read a cup measurer, I highly recommend the Oxo measuring cups! You can also find them on Amazon.
  • Kitchen scale: I have tried several brands but I love the Oxo kitchen scale the most. The OXO kitchen scale takes regular AA batteries, it can also be used to weigh by difference (with negative numbers!), it has a pull out display, and the stainless steel plate that you weigh on can be removed, making washing so much easier—get the OXO kitchen scale on Amazon. By the way, OXO has a new version of their popular kitchen scale on Amazon, but I haven't tried it yet.
  • Technique is everything so make sure to read this guide to measuring ingredients for baking, so that you use the best techniques.

Below you will find a list of baking conversions that I follow when I'm baking so you can easily convert from grams to cups, or the other way around. If you have to replace one ingredient with another in your recipes, make sure to consult this list of baking substitutions to guide you through the process.

Why "how much does 1 cup weigh" isn't the right question to ask

"How much does 1 cup weigh?" is a question that I get asked a lot, but it's a question that is too vague for me to answer without more details: the reality is that the weight of 1 cup of anything is dependant on the density of the ingredient you are measuring. So 1 cup of all purpose flour does not weigh the same thing as 1 cup of chocolate or 1 cup of skim milk, for example. The volume of 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of milk is the same. Yes. But the weight of 1 cup of these ingredients is not.

Conversions for fats

Baking conversions for butter from cups to grams

As a rule: 1 stick of butter is ½ cup and weighs 115 grams; 2 sticks of butter is 1 cup and weighs 230 grams. A pound of butter is 4 sticks of butter and weighs 450 grams. You should note that 1 stick of butter is also equivalent to 8 tablespoon of butter. Half a stick of butter is equivalent to ¼ cup or 4 tablespoon of butter. Don't confuse the big pound block of butter with the smaller baking sticks.

  • 1 cup butter weighs 230 grams
  • ¾ cupbutter weighs 173 grams
  • ⅔ cupbutter weighs 153 grams
  • ½ cupbutterweighs115 grams
  • ⅓ cupbutterweighs77 grams
  • ¼ cupbutterweighs58 grams

Baking conversions for oil from cups to grams

The conversion from volume to weight for oil is slightly different than butter. Oil has a lower density than butter, therefore 1 cup oil weighs a little less than 1 cup of butter. In fact, 1 cup of oil weighs 225 grams.

  • 1 cup oilweighs225 grams
  • ¾ cupoilweighs170 grams
  • ⅔ cupoilweighs150 grams
  • ½ cupoilweighs113 grams
  • ⅓ cupoilweighs75 grams
  • ¼ cupoilweighs56 grams


The weight of 1 cup of flour varies according to the type of flour. It also varies greatly according to how you fill the measuring cup with flour. I measure flour using the spoon-into-cup method, as opposed to the scooping method.

  • For the spoon-into-cup method, you are spooning the flour into the dry measuring cup and 1 cup of flour is equivalent to 125 grams, on average. You are not packing and compacting the flour into the cup measure. You are not tapping the measuring cup to pack the flour down so you can squeeze in more!
  • For the scooping method: if you take your measuring cup and drag it through a bag of flour to fill it, the flour is more compact in the measuring cup and therefore, 1 cup of flour will weigh 140 grams, if not more.

If you spoon flour into your measuring cup, 1 cup of flour is equivalent to 125 grams, on average. That's the way I fill a measuring cup and so that is the conversion I use on Kitchen Heals Soul. Here are some useful conversions of cups to grams of flour.

Baking conversions for cake flour from cups to grams

Cake flour is lighter than all-purpose flour, and so, 1 cup of cake flour weighs 115 grams. For chestnut flour, 1 cup weighs 115 grams as well. This conversion also applies to chopped nuts: 1 cup of chopped nuts weighs 115 grams.

  • 1 cup cake flour weighs115 grams
  • ¾ cup cake flour weighs86 grams
  • ⅔ cupcake flournutsweighs77 grams
  • ½ cupcake flourweighs58 grams
  • ⅓ cupcake flourweighs38 grams
  • ¼ cupcake flourweighs29 grams

Baking conversions for granulated sugar&brownsugar (not packed) from cups to grams

Please note that I do not pack my brown sugar into the cup measurer. I spoon the sugar into the measurer. As a rule, 1 cup of sugar weighs 200 grams. If you are measuring brown sugar and you pack the brown sugar tightly into the cup measure, 1 cup of brown sugar will weigh 220 grams, if not more.

  • 1 cup granulated or brown sugarweighs200 grams
  • ¾ cup granulated or brown sugarweighs150 grams
  • ⅔ cup granulated or brown sugarweighs133 grams
  • ½ cup granulated or brown sugarweighs100 grams

Converting metric volumes (mL) to imperial volumes (cups)

Some websites set 1 cup as 236 mL (or 240 mL). Others set 1 cup as 230 mL. Personally, I set 1 cup to 250 mL. The important thing is to be consistent. I'm honestly not sure any measuring cups are truly able to distinguish between 240 mL and 250 mL, so let's call 1 cup 250 mL and stick with that. Also, I use American tablespoons and teaspoons to measure smaller amounts of ingredients. And 1 tablespoon (15 mL) is equivalent to 3 teaspoon (3 x 5 mL).

(Video) Table of Conversions | Dry Ingredients | Baking | Cookery

  • Conversions for US cups to millilitres
    • 1 cup = 250 mL
    • ¾ cup = 190 mL
    • ⅔ cup = 170 mL
    • ½ cup = 125 mL
    • ⅓ cup = 80 mL
    • ¼ cup = 60 mL
  • Conversions for US tablespoons & teaspoons to millilitres
    • 1 tablespoon = 15 mL
    • 1 teaspoon = 5 mL
    • ¾ teaspoon = 3.75 mL (rounded to 4 mL)
    • ½ teaspoon = 2.5 mL (rounded to 3 mL)
    • ¼ teaspoon = 1.25 mL (rounded to 1 mL)
    • ⅛ teaspoon = 0.625 mL (rounded to <1 mL)

Please don't use the mL button on your kitchen scale, if it has one, to measure a volume. Yes, you can weigh a volume, but the button on your kitchen scale is assuming that you are weighing out water, which has a density of 1 gram per millilitre. For example, most oils have a density of 0.9 g per mL, so if you use the mL button on your kitchen scale to measure a volume, it will do so incorrectly and this may lead to problems in your recipe. If you need to measure a volume, use liquid measuring cups (like this set on Amazon).
