Sometimes 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:

Happy Baking!
I love yr blog chef madhuram. Its so informative and explanations are done very beautifully. Please do send me eggless recipes. Also substitues for gkutten in whole wheat breads. Tks a lot. God bless you
Thank you very much Wendy. You can subscribe to receive the recipes in email whenever I update my blog or can check the blog anytime as all the recipes are free to access. I rarely bake gluten-free because baking gluten-free and egg free is very tricky and requires some experimentation. I have not tried a gluten substitute in a whole wheat bread recipe. Sorry, can’t help you with this one.
Hi I tried baking eggless banana cake with 1.5cups is wheat flour in a 23cm round cake tin(9″) at 160c for 60min .I preheated my gas oven for 15min.It tasted yummy but I felt like some more baking was needed!
should I use a 18cm(7″)round tin?or should I preheat more?or increase baking time?kindly guide.
I’m guessing it probably needs more time in the oven. Usually recipes with whole wheat flour need more baking time.
thanks how much is wheat flour measurement of 1 cup in grams or TB some recipes us whole wheat flour so it would be helpful to have right measurements.
Please check the baking measurements page for cups to grams conversion chart.
How much is half of 1/3 cup of APF in TB please info thanks
A little more than 5 tablespoons. For more baking measurements please check the page.
Would 1 cup of melted butter be the same as shown here – 225g?
How many mls would be the equivalent to 1 cup of water? – I’m trying to convert your eggless vanilla cake recipe.
Thank you!x
For liquid ingredients conversion check the volume conversion table in the same page.
My organic coconut sugar says a serving is 5g
How do I convert that into a measurement❓
A teaspoon of sugar is about 4-5 grams.
Pls,I will like to know if am using 6cups of flour for cake how many cups of suger will I use and how many eggs and also butter will I use too. Thks
Sorry Stella, I’m not sure.
Am truely mad in baking but sometimes its confusing me wwhen it comes the recipe is written in grams and am using measuring equipments ml. For example 60grams for milk is how much in ml,120grams of flour is how much in mls. Thanks.
Ml is the measurement for liquids only and gms is for solids, so I’m not sure why will a recipe use gms for liquids and ml for flour.
Hi Madhuram,
Your website is very interesting, i’m a vegetarian and love baking. 1 egg is replaced by 1tbsp flaxseed+1/4 cup warm water mix. So my doubt is in regular recipes they mention the wieght of eggs in gram. so how many grams do i consider as 1 egg. for the flax seed replacer recipe
Thanks Ronak. I have never seen eggs measured in grams in recipes. Is it measured after it’s broken and just the contents or the egg as a whole? I Googled and saw that one large egg without shell is approximately 50 grams. So you will have to use the flaxseed egg replacement accordingly.
an egg is usually considered to be 50 gm
Thank you, this so helpful
You’re welcome Donna.
Thank you so much for sharing the conversions. However request you to make it available in Downloadable PDF format to make it much easier to take a printout and keep it handy.
You’re welcome AJ. Thanks for the PDF idea. Will work on it.
Thank you very much for sharing this post .. It’s very useful to me ..
The measuring cup of mine , 1 cup = 200 ml ..
So I always adjust the measurement for the ingredients on baking that I found many recipes from outside my country using the US standard measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml ..
You’re very welcome 🙂
How do I measure beans?
Do you mean converting the measurement of beans from cups to grams? Can you please be more specific?
I have a recipe for a smoothie that call for 40 Mg Raw honey, 40 Mg Crushed Almonds and7 Gr Cinnamon. How do I measure that in a 8 oz cup
Because it is only a smoothie recipe and not a baking recipe you don’t have to be very accurate. I would use about 1/4 cup of each raw honey and ground almonds and maybe half a teaspoon of cinnamon.
Good Day all
I have a 14 year old daughter who likes to bake, but struggle with the grams. Please be so kind and send me all the measurements of butter, flour, sugar and baking powder from grams into cups,teaspoons or tablespoons. Have a nice day
Is it possible to use the reverse of this table to some extent?
I bought these measuring cups and spoons on one of them it says 7.5ml – 1dsp. What does dsp stand for? Is it half a table spoon? So confused. And they usually say they preheat the oven to 350 is that in farenheit?
I have never heard about it before and so Googled and found out that it’s dessert spoon. See if this helps. http://www.discusscooking.com/forums/f32/what-does-dsp-means-1856.html
Hi, is the flour conversation for 1 cup only 110 grams? I weighed 1 cup of flour and it was nearly twice as much. Need to make a birthday cake but I’m now a little confused
Jan
I’m sorry that I can’t help with this Jan. I usually bake using US standard cup measurement. I got these charts off the internet. I’m not used to baking with grams, etc.
When I used a standard US measuring cup with 2 cups spooned and leveled all-purposes flour and weighed it on my scale, it was 280 grams. The 1/4 cup of sugar, however weighed in at 55 grams. Thanks for pointing this out, as we all know in baking it is beneficial to have precise measurements and I would have just gone at what the chart said.
You’re welcome Caren.
Wow thank you so much. This will help anyone to convert measurement easily. I love baking but everytime something goes wrong. Can you please tell me difference btwn fold and stir.
You’re welcome Priya. Nothing different Priya. It’s the same.
Thanks so much Madhuram, this has made measurement easy for me to get, i’m just a beginner, i really want to know how to bake nice cakes
You’re very welcome Elizabeth.
Please I have a problem with mathematics especially measurements and I can hardly comprehend this. So please can I know the measurement of flour, butter, eggs, sugar, baking powder. I can use to bake a cake for a family of 4 and 5. Thank you and I will appreciate a reply.
Hi Deerex, I generally use the standard US cup measurements. I have not measured any of the ingredients in grams/ounces etc. This chart I got off of the internet. If you have a particular recipe in mind let me know and will see if I will be able to help you with the conversion.
