Baking can be quite a challenge due to the different measurement units used you come across in all kind of recipes. Some ingredients are measured in cups, others in tablespoons or teaspoons. Additionally there are differences between US cups and UK cups and on top of that even they vary depending on the source you are looking at.

For example by searching on the internet for how much grams a cup of all-purpose flour should be, the found values have been 100 g, 120 g, 125 g and even 150 g. That is another point, why all recipies on Delight Baking are always measured in grams. It is the most accurate way to provide recipes that lead to the most constant baking results, therefore also our baking conversion charts can only provide a direction you can use for orientation.

All baking equivalent measurements are approximate and most have been rounded up or down to one decimal place. In general 1 cup equals 16 tablespoons or 48 teaspoons. This way you can easily calculate ingredients on your own, if they are not already provided in the charts.

If you come across a recipe where the ingredients are measured in cups, tablespoons or teaspoons you will be able to quickly convert them to grams by using the converions charts below.

Provided is a conversion chart for the most common baking ingredients for cups, tablespoons and teaspoons. Additionally there are conversion charts for 1, 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4 for cups, tablespoons and teaspoons for a quick lookup without the need to calculate them on your own.
