Weights – volume

Often it’s more accurate to measure out the ingredients by weight, but you only have measuring cups or spoons available.  Also, some conversions between imperial and metric have me baffled …

I found this nice table in an e-book recently – hope it’s useful for you!

1 teaspoon = 5 ml = 10g

1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons = 15 ml = 20g

1 pound = 2 cups = 450g

1 oz = 1 1/2 tablespoons = 30g = 30 ml

1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons = 60 ml

1/2 cups = 8 tablespoons = 125 ml

1 cup = 16 tablespoons = 1/2 pint

1 cup flour = 140g

1 cup sugar = 200g

1 cup liquid =   250 ml

1 cup dried fruit/nuts = 150g

1 cup rolled oats   = 120g
