Measurement Conversions

Here are some common conversions between volumes. I’m going by the Canadian cup here (which is 250 mL.) If you aren’t from Canada, the cup you are used to might be different. If you want to see a Wikipedia article on all the different cups out there, click here. Apparently having just one type of cup is too easy.

1 cup = 250 mL

1 tsp = 5 mL

1 tbsp = 15 mL

1 tbsp = 3 tsp

1/4 cup = 4 tbsp = 60 mL

1/2 cup = 8 tbsp = 120 mL

3/4 cup = 12 tbsp = 180 mL

4 cups = 1L = 1000 mL

 

Here are some conversions of volume to weight for some common ingredients:

1 cup butter = 227 g
(I round to 225 because I like this number better. I might have OCD.)

1 cup all purpose flour = 140 g
(This is using Robin Hood Unbleached all purpose flour. Canadian flour generally has a relatively high protein content so this might not be the same if you are using a different brand of flour. Also, cake, pastry, or bread flour will all have different weights.)

1 cup white granulated sugar = 200 g

1 cup brown sugar = 200-220 g
(This will depend on moisture level of sugar and how packed together it is.)

1 cup icing sugar = 140 g

1 cup quick oats = 100 g
