Baking Measurements

Baking MeasurementsSometimes when I’m not sure about a recipe but want to try it anyway, I scale down the recipe to 50% of the original. In those circumstances, I found it very difficult to calculate 50% of 3/4 cup, or to measure 50% of 1.5 tablespoon, etc. Then I found this handy table in my “Baking for Dummies” book. For instance 3/4th of a cup is equal to 12 tablespoons, so half of it would be 6 tablespoons.


Here are the frequently asked questions on baking measurements:

    .25 cups of peanut butter is considered how much?

    • Madhuram

      1/4 cup

  2. Raheemah

    Please I need chocolate cake recipe measurements for 1250g of flour

    • Madhuram

      Sorry Raheemah. I do not bake in grams measurements.

  3. Jami

    Thanks but why can’t I print this?

    • Madhuram

      We will make it available ASAP.

  4. Diane Humes

    Question: I have noticed that UK/European measurements are quite different from American. They have either a little more or a little less, such as Bread Flour, in grams to cups. That’s why my Bread Flour conversion was WAY too much, as Bread Flour is more dense.
    Like 500 grams of Bread Flour is 4 cups in our conversion, but in their actual recipe, it woukd be more like 3-3.5 cups.
    Help clarify, please.

    • Madhuram

      Hi, Diane, I think the best bet is to invest in a small kitchen scale that has US cups, gms, ml, ounces, and all sorts of conversion. As I follow the US cup measurement and don’t have experience measuring by weight for baking I too have to look at the charts and give a rough estimate which I’m not sure how helpful it will be.

  5. Pranjal

    Please tell the measurements in cup of the following (the quantity of my cup is of 300ml):
    33g aquafaba
    38g oat flour
    50g powdered sugar
    38g castor sugar

    • Madhuram

      It’s challenging to convert using the chart, Pranjal. I would suggest investing in a small digital kitchen scale which will have all sorts of conversions.

  6. Janice Morseman

    Sweetened condensed milk 200 mg is how much in cups

    • Madhuram

      I’m guessing it’s close to 3/4th of a cup.

  7. Gail Hansen

    can u please tell me what is 1125grams is in cups for mixed fruit for a cake .
    250 grams of butter to cups
    395 grams of condensed milk into cups please .

    • Madhuram

      My rough estimate would be 3.5-4 cups of mixed fruit (candied peel/tutti fruiti), 1.25 cups butter and 1.5 cups condensed milk. I might be wrong. Please invest in a small digital kitchen scale which will be very helpful for such conversions.
