Re: grams to cups

According to the Rec.Cooking.FAQ, granulated sugar is 190 grams per cup.

250 grams / 190 grams/cup = 1.32 cups

Re: grams to cups

300 grams of butter is about 1 and 1/3 cups.

200 grams of milk is a little over 3/4 cup.

Re: grams to cups

We should just conclude that the US "cup-standard" is a bit retarded and should be replaced with the metric standard.

Re: grams to cups

That wont help. Converting US cups to metric milliliter is very simple but wont solve the problem.

The US uses volume for cooking measurements, UK uses weight. Using a metric cup (or milliliters) instead of traditional cup wont help convert things to grams.

Certainly not retarded either. While many countries may consider a scale a common item for the kitchen, it is not common everywhere. Measuring cups are smaller, cheaper, and easier to use than a scale.

Other problems are that the ingredients themselves differ. UK flour is a different density then US flour, for example. If you need 100 grams of flour for a UK recipe it wont come out as well in the US if you use 100 grams.

Re: grams to cups

Would the same conversion work for sugar (300 grams of sugar equals 3 cups sugar)? Also what should I use for 200 grams butter (in cup/stick equivalents)? Thanks!

Re: grams to cups

Granulated sugar is 190 grams/cup.
300 grams / 190 grams/cup = 1.6 cups, slightly over 1 and 1/2 cups.

Butter is 230 grams/cup.
200 grams / 230 grams/cup = 0.9 cups, about 1 cup.

egg noodle pasta is 90 grams/cup.
250 grams / 90 grams/cup = 2.78 cups, about 2 and 3/4 cups.

macaronni pasta is 115 grams/cup.
250 grams / 115 grams/cup = 2.2 cups, about 2 and 1/4 cups.
