How Many Grams to Cups and Cups to Grams Conversion Table

It can be incredibly annoying finding a recipe that only has it’s ingredients in cups or only grams. Thankfully there are calculators and conversion tables to help, which is what I made here! This page is meant to cover a wide variety of ingredients and their common measurements to help in baking or cooking. 

Grams to Cups Conversion and Why They Differ

Some people may be wondering, why does the ingredient matter, wont 1 cup always equal the same amount in grams? The answer is no, different ingredients come with different densities and will also not always be able to equally fill up the space in a measuring cup. 

As a rule of thumb though, for dry goods roughly 128g equals 1 cup.

How to Fill a Measuring Cup

It seems silly because the first thing you think is, “just put the stuff in the cup”. But, filling a cup matters, especially if its a powdered ingredient. For example, scooping flour out of a bag and skimming the top until it’s flat is one way to do it.

Then you have to wonder if that’s what the recipe writer intended, or did they pack the flour into the cup before adding more? The difference between an unpacked cup and packed can be as much as a 50% difference in grams!

So, it’s important to know how to fill a measuring cup and ensure you do it the same as the original recipe.

Using Grams or Cups for Baking?

Another reason on why it’s good to know the conversions from cups to grams, is because a lot of baking should be done with precision. Knowing exactly how many grams you’re using is a lot more important than knowing in cups, tbsps, or tsps. Anyone who’s tried to bake knows that a little difference in measurement makes the world of difference!

Not Everything Fits Evenly Into a Cup

Keep in mind that not every ingredient you’ll use will fit evenly in a cup. Certain things like nuts or chocolate chips will leave air gaps when filled into the cup. This can’t really be helped, but it is something you should be aware of because the measurements won’t also be exactly the same.
