Metric Conversion Chart

For my international visitors, I have put together the metric conversion chart below based on weights and measurements I made in my own kitchen. The results vary depending on the cup I use, the brand of flour, or the way it’s placed into the cup so I did my best after measuring many different times, always aerating the flour first. I hope this proves helpful.

Flour
1 cup  =  4 1/2 ounces  =  130 grams

1/2 cup  =  2 1/4  ounces  =  65 grams

1/3 cup  =  1 1/2 ounces  =  45 grams

1/4 cup  =  1 1/8  ounces  =  32 grams

Granulated & Caster Sugar
1 cup  =  7 ounces  =  200 grams

1/2 cup  =  3.5 ounces  =  100 grams

1/3 cup  =  2.3 ounces  =  66 grams

1/4 cup  =  1.75 ounces  =  50 grams

1 Tablespoon =  0.45 ounces  =  12.50 grams

Yeast
1 packet = 7 grams

1 teaspoon = 3 1/2 grams

1/4 teaspoon = 0.9 grams

Powdered Sugar & Powdered Cocoa
1 cup  =  3.5 ounces  =  100 grams

1/2 cup  =  1.75 ounces  =  50 grams

1/3 cup  =  1.15 ounces  =  33 grams

1/4 cup  =  .85 ounces  =  25 grams

1 Tablespoon =  0.20 ounces  =  6.25 grams

Liquids
1 cup  =  8 ounces  =  240 mL

1/2 cup  =  4 ounces  =  120 mL

1/3 cup  =  2.6 ounces  =  80 mL

1/4 cup  =  2 ounces  =  60 mL

1 Tablespoon =  0.50 ounce  =  15 mL

Butter
1 Tablespoon  =  0.50 ounce  =  14 grams

1/4 cup  =  2 ounces  =  56 grams

1/3 cup  =  2.6 ounces  =  75 grams

1/2 cup  =  4 ounces  =  113 grams

1 cup  =  8 ounces  =  226 grams

Oven Baking Temperatures
225 degrees F  =  110 degrees C  =  1/4 gas number
250 degrees F  =  130 degrees C  =  1/2 gas number
275 degrees F  =  140 degrees C  =  1 gas number
300 degrees F  =  150 degrees C  =  2 gas number
325 degrees F  =  165 degrees C  =  3 gas number
350 degrees F  =  180 degrees C  =  4 gas number
375 degrees F  =  190 degrees C  =  5 gas number
400 degrees F  =  200 degrees C  =  6 gas number
425 degrees F  =  220 degrees C  =  7 gas number
450 degrees F  =  230 degrees C  =  8 gas number
475 degrees F  =  245 degrees C  =  9 gas number
500 degrees F  =  260 degrees C  =  10 gas number
