Cups to Gram conversion (Flour-Sugar-Butter)

Frequently I get questions on how much gram is 1 cup of  flour or sugar especially when it comes to baking. Measurements are very important in baking. It is really difficult to write both the measurements (cups and grams) every time. So I decided on a separate post hoping it will be useful for everyone. 

Kitchen scale

1#All purpose flour

Cup measurements to grams

1/8 cup=15 grams

1/4 cup=30.25 grams

1/3 cup=40 grams

1/2 cup=62.5 grams

3/4 cup=90 grams

1 cup= 125 grams


1 stick butter - 8 tbsp

Cups to Grams

1/8 cup=30 grams

1/4 cup=55 grams

1/3 cup=75 grams

1/2 cup=115 grams

2/3 cup=150 grams

3/4 cup=170 grams

1 cup=225 grams

3#White granulated Sugar-Dark Brown Sugar

 2 Tbsp= 25 g

 1/4 cup = 50 g

 1/3 cup = 67 g

 1/2 cup = 100 g

 2/3 cup = 134 g

 3/4 cup = 150 g

 1 cup = 200 grams

  1. Thanks for posting this informative post Padhu. Appreciate it.


  2. Mine one cup says 200ml... Plz help me out in measurements of grams

    1. 1 cup is 200 ml only but differs depending on the ingredients measured. 1 cup all purpose flour is 125 grams where as 1 cup sugar is 200 grams.

  3. How come 1cup=125gms of flour n cups u showed n what we get says 1cup=250ml. Its very confusing some say 1cup=130gms of flour how come. Plz reply

    1. It depends on what you measure in the cup.

  4. Please clarify if the measurements for butter is given in melted form or squishy at room temperature?

    1. You can cut the butter taken from the refrigerator and measure it. Not melted butter.
