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:

You’re very welcome, Connie.
I just want to know how many bay leaves is 30 grams
It’s a little confusing need to know how many bay leaves is it 3/8 or is it 1/4 cups or is it a different measurements bay leaves cuz they did not specify crushed or whole
Bay leaves are usually used as a whole leaf. It’s just for flavoring and aroma. You have to remove the leaf after the cooking is done anyway so crushing it would make it difficult. Just one to two leaves should be fine depending upon the quantity you are cooking.
Hi, I need one help in understanding, if my measuring cups have different measurement for cup, how the above calculation will differ or the above measurements stands the same if I use them?
My measuring cups show below metrics for each:
1cup = 240ml
2/3 cup = 120 ml
1/2cup = 60ml
1/4cup = 30ml
Sorry, Nancy, I’m unable to understand the question correctly. Can you please be more specific?
So math illiterate, Please explain a 20% of six cups of flour in a conversion written out!
Thank you!
DIna
Hi Dina, 1 cup of all-purpose flour is 110 gms. So 6 cups is 6×110=660 gms. 20% of that is 132gms. Hope this helps.
Nice
I love this ! Very helpful ā£ļø
Thanks, Rhea.

Hi Yvette, I use only cup measurements. Use the chart to get the rough estimate.
Thanks for the measurements. They are really handy because I do a lot of baking . Having not to do conversations will cut down on preparation time.
You’re welcome, Olive.
Superb.. these sort of guidance with atmost details help anyone

Butter 30gm
Milk 60 ml
Please help me with these ingredients
Sugar 15gms
Coco powder 15gms
Butter 30gms
Milk 60ml
Please can u send me the measurements for these ingredients
If you use a kitchen scale, that has grams and ml so you can weigh everything on there.
So yesterday, I was making a dinner rolls recipe which calls for essentially 325 grams of flour, which roughly equates to 11.46 ounces according to google.
But then again, the recipe was given in cups too, which was written as 2 + 1/2 cups which according to google and the measuring cups which I have, give me 20 oz!
This absolutely did not make sense to me because if 325 gm of flour equates to 11.46 oz, then how does 2+ 1/2 cups not equal to 11.46 oz and instead equals to 20 oz?
Then again, the amount of milk needed is written as 150 ml, which equates to 5.29 oz on google and when I used my measuring cups, it equals to 5.29 too! Which is so weird because I had the measuring problem with flour!
So at first, I went ahead with 5.73 oz but the dough was just TOO wet, nothing like the video I saw and I had to use a ton of extra flour. The buns came out great, even if they did not pass the windowpane test.
I am just having a very hard time understanding measurement now and it is eating away at my brain!
I know, I can understand the situation very well. I too have got used to baking following only US standard size cup measurements. These days I have started avoiding recipes which has measurements only in gms.
Thank you so much ā¦.it is a very useful tips for me
You’re welcome.
This is exactly what I needed. Thank you
You’re welcome, Freida.
Thank you for this
Thank you so much ma’am ….it is a very useful tips for me as I am a beginner in baking …..
I have one request ….will u pliz give me some tips for baking burger buns, meringue, macaron in OTG USHA OVEN….
You’re welcome, Nen. Meringue and macaroons require eggs. Please look for vegan recipes for the same in the web. I’m yet to try one. I haven’t used an OTG oven so not sure if there is any specific tips/tricks to be followed. Sorry that I cannot help you with that.
Thank you for this! Iām a beginner in baking and this would help me improve the quality of my baked goods as weight measurements are more accurate (according to few articles). This would also save me time calculating different measurements.
Thank you for sharing this!
You’re very welcome Bo Lerio.
Thanks for the very useful chart of measurement in baking . I used to struggle in finding the correct measurements of the different ingredients
You’re very welcome, Dr Shilla.
At https://convertrecipe.com you can convert the whole recipe from US to metric or from metric to US with just one click.
Thank you, Johanna.
my son has done HM and dont want to venture in NV can this bakery help and what is the meaning of all purpose flour
I’m not running a bakery, Nbn. It’s just a recipe blog where I post tried and tested recipes. All-purpose flour is refined wheat flour or maida.
This measurement will help me keep my blood sugar low. Thank you!
Thanks, Lynette.
Lady, you are awesome!! thank you so much for all that you have accomplished by doing what you love. What an inspiration!! I have tried your eggless chocolate cake recipe and it has always been great, especially for my mum and her friends. Even my meat eating friends love it.
For some drama, i vary the size of my circular pans. it gives a great stepped effect to the layers of the cake. Instead of frosting, I have sometimes used blackberries or raspberries (reduced by cooking in butter, orange juice and cinnamon) as a slurpy topping. Never disappoints š
Thanks again for exposing me to the joys of making the sweet treats!
Thank you very much, Amit. You made my day with your wonderful feedback and generous compliments. Your idea of drama is inspiring me as well š
