Cooking conversions for common ingredients (US cups to grams and oz)

13 February 2021

Here you’ll find cooking and baking conversions for common ingredients from US cups to grams and ounces.

Please note that 1 US cup = 240 ml whereas 1 European/AU cup is = 250ml !

I measured all the amounts in grams myself, then converted the grams to ounces using google converter.

A learned the US way of measuring ingredients as most of my audience is located in the US, but I always cook and bake using a scale as I find it much simpler and quicker. Cooking using measuring cups usually makes no problems but baking is very inaccurate. It is best to use a scale for great and consistent results.

1 US cup = 240 ml

1 cup = 16 tablespoons = 8 fluid ounces

1 tablespoon = 15 ml

1 teaspoon = 5 ml

To quickly find if I have an ingredient you’re looking for:

  • If you’re on mobile (chrome): click 3 dots in the upper right corner of your browser, click ‘search on this website’, type in your ingredient, and click enter.
  • If you’re on mobile (safari): tap the Smart Search bar, then type in the ingredient and click enter.
  • If you’re on desktop: click CTRL+F on your keyboard, then type in the ingredient and click enter.

Very important: There are different methods of measuring flour! Many websites specify completely different flour weights! It can differ from 120g to 150g per cup of flour. If a recipe calls for a couple of cups of flour, imagine how big of a difference this can make! That why I prefer to use a scale (it’s cheap, easy to make, and far quicker than using measuring cups). 1 cup of all-purpose flour in all my recipes weigh 125g.

The most important when measuring flour using measuring cups: don’t compact the flour in the cup.

How to correctly measure flour:

  1. Fluff the flour by stirring it in the bag/flour container with a spoon.
  2. Spoon the flour and sprinkle it into your measuring cup.
  3. Sweep off the excess flour with the back of a knife.
