Baking Secrets: Measurement Conversions

You’ll find that this chart is pure gold. I often prefer converting solid, more traditional recipes (the kind that are past down through generations, like family recipes) to converting gluten-free or other alternative recipes. I refer to this chat frequently when converting those recipes and find that I can usually get positive results.

Remember to watch out next Thursday for more on how I convert recipes!

Measurement Conversions for Baking Ingredients

As a reference 1 cup of all purpose flour (wheat) = 125 grams so when you substitute other flours and starches this list should help.  Using weights instead of volumes will greatly improve and bring consistency to your baking.

1 cup potato starch = 174 grams

1 cup superfine white rice flour = 98 ounces

1 cup sorghum flour = 109 grams

1 cup millet flour = 109 grams

1 cup potato flour (differs from potato starch) = 173 grams
