1American Cooking Measurements.... Empty American Cooking Measurements.... Thu Oct 23, 2008 3:26 am

Hi all!!!
Okay did a bit of weighing and measuring.... Let me know if there is anything specific that you want weighed.

Flour I used just ordinary Plain white...
1 cup = 130 grams
1/2 cup = 65 grams
1/3 cup = 48 grams
1/4 cup = 32 grams
Now in American cooking a little more here and there won't hurt.

When American recipes say sugar they mean Granulated sugar... If they say superfine they mean Caster and Powdered is icing sugar....
I measured Granulated
1 cup = 200 grams
1/2 cup = 100 grams
1/3 cup = 64 grams
1/4 cup = 50 grams

Butter in the US comes in sticks and some recipes call for a stick of butter or margarine. That is equal to 1/2 cup.
1 cup = 8 oz or 227 grams
1/2 cup = 4 oz or 113.5 grams

Dry ingredients are measured in the cups as the flour and sugar and wet ingredients are measured in a liquid measuring cup.
Those measurements are as follows.
1 cup = 8 fluid oz or 250 ml
1/2 cup = 4 oz or 125 ml
1/4 cup = 2 oz or 75 ml
and 1/3 cup = not quite 3 oz or 83 ml roughly
An American Quart = 32 fluid ozs and is 2 American pints.
An American Pint is 16 fluid ozs and is 2 American liquid cups.

Okay that is what I measured. I think Tablespoons and Teaspoons are roughly the same. We don't use desert spoons in our cooking so won't need to measure that.
Let me know if there is an ingredient you need measured and I will add it to these.
Hope it helps.
