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:

120g. Caster sugar in Cup?
270g heavy cream in cup?
20g cake flour in cup?
Thank you .
1 and 1/4 cups heavy cream and 1/2 cup cake flour is my guess from the charts available in the page.
I’m guessing 1/2 cup
Excellent service info. Very grateful
Glad you find it useful, Shola.
80 grams of ginger is how much in oz? or tablespoon? or cup? thanks a lot!
Hi Elizabeth, are you looking for ground ginger or grated fresh ginger? You can try this website for the conversion: https://www.traditionaloven.com/foods/multi-units-converter/ginger-root-raw.html
I donâ€™t know how to measure ingredients. I understand what 80g flour (3/5 cup) is? Please help? Thank you
In the chart, I see that 75gms is 2/3rd of a cup and 85 gms is 3/4th of a cup. Depending on what you are baking, I would suggest you either use 2/3rd or 3/4th of a cup. I’m sure you can get away with not being very precise.
Hi there, this recipe is asking for 80 grams of cake flour, milk and sugar… as well as 50 grams of canola oil.. Iâ€™m not sure what measurements to use. I only use cups not grams
Those are some specific and tricky measurements and conversions, James. I tried using the chart and it won’t be accurate if I just give my estimate. Try some online conversion tables for exact measurements.
hey so my recipe is asking for 1.5 tsp and iâ€™m having trouble just trying to figure out the whole 1.5 thing. is that like 1/2 tsp or what. iâ€™m kinda struggling here.
Yes, Kai. It’s 1 and a half teaspoon.
Thanks for this info, very useful.. please what is cup measurement for 80g of butter?
1/3 of a cup
Thanks so much for including this conversion page. Being in Australia, I often give up on US recipes simply because I’m not sure how to convert them to my equipment. And often I’m not even sure whether an ingredient was measured by volume or by weight, so again, this conversion page helps.
You’re welcome, Ryl.
.25 cups of peanut butter is considered how much?

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

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.
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.
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
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.
Sweetened condensed milk 200 mg is how much in cups
I’m guessing it’s close to 3/4th of a cup.
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 .
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.
