Baking Conversions

Share it!   

Happy Tuesday! I’ve been seeing a lot of baking-related-measurement questions lately, so thought I’d put this together for you to have, all in once place…

Not all of my recipes have measurements in weights and for those which do, not all include both metric and imperial. I’ve created a place here for you to find conversions for common baking ingredients, as well as other handy conversions, such as liquid measure equivalents, temperature conversions and a handy length measurement chart. Each one has a printable version so you can hang it on your fridge or tuck it into your favorite recipe book. Happy baking!

Weight Conversions for Flour, Sugar and Other Common Ingredients in Baking

Proper ingredient measurement is especially key in baking, and weighing really is the most accurate way to measure.  Since not all of my recipes provide both weight measurements (ounces or grams) and volume measurements (cups), below is a handy illustrated list of the most common baking ingredients.

A little note for you – These are commonly accepted weight conversions and are useful for recipes where no other weights are provided, but if a recipe you’re using provides its own conversions, stick to what’s given, as the way each recipe writer measures flour, for example, may differ.  Their recipe is probably tailored to their preferences.

    Thanks Marion, I enjoy getting your updates. They are informative and respectfully scheduled. (I don’t know how to say that there aren’t too many in my inbox, just a couple a month, just right!)I have been busy decorating the B&B for Christmas. I know it is early but we are having a fundraiser for our Women’s shelter here in Yarmouth, N.S. and really, you need the decorations to get everyone feeling in the mood. I wish we could have tea. I have learned so much since you came into my inbox!
