Weighing ingredients gives you the most accurate, reproducible (and tasty) results (especially in baking), but not all recipes list their measurements by mass. Luckily, King Arthur Flour has put together a handy weight chart for a wide variety of ingredients.

Click the link below for the full list of conversions (it’s gigantic) but some of the most useful ones are:

  • Unbleached Plain Flour: 1 cup = 4 1/4 ounces = 120 grams
  • Self-Raising Flour: 1 cup = 4 ounces = 113 grams
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon = 4 grams
  • Bicarbonate of Soda: 1/2 teaspoon = 3 grams
  • Butter: 1/2 cup = 1 stick = 4 ounces = 113 grams
  • Sugar (caster): 1 cup = 7 ounces = 198 grams

Just find your ingredient on the list, convert the measurement from volume to mass using the values given and follow the rest of the recipe as usual, without having to wonder if your scoop and scrape technique is on point.
