Cups to Grams Conversion Chart
Hi! Below is my Cups to Grams Measurement Conversions Sheet. I personally measured everything for it, laid it all out, and added some illustrations to it so you can have a handy (and fun-looking) guide to use alongside my recipes here at proteinpow.com. Go ahead and print it out, stick it on your fridge or inside one of your cupboards and POW! You’ll have a useful guide to convert my (and everyone else’s) recipes from cups to grams (and vice versa).
To download the sheet, just click on one of the links before (one of them is A4-size paper and the other is for US letter size).
Cups to Grams Measurement Conversion Sheet (US letter size)
Please also note, as mentioned in the sheet:
2 x tablespoons = 1/8 cup
2 x 1/8 cups = 1/4 cup
2 x 1/4 cups = 1/2 cup
2 x 1/2 cups = 1 cup
It seems blatantly obvious but seeing it like this, it makes you realize that you really only need ONE measuring utensil to get EVERY SINGLE cup/tbsp conversion. That’s right. So if a recipe calls for ¼ cup of something, you don’t NEED to own a ‘1/4 cup measuring cup’ because 1/4 cup is just 4 measuring tablespoons (because remember, 2 x tablespoons = 1/8 cup and 2 x 1/8 cups = 1/4 cup). If tablespoons bug you, you can just buy a 1/8 measuring cup. With it, you can get ¼ cups, ½ cups, and 1 cups! Moral of the paragraph: you DO NOT need to fill your kitchen up with all kinds of volume-measuring equipment if you don’t want to (if you do though, get some like these – they’re the ones I use).
Let’s now turn to the list itself which features some of the most popular ingredients used here at proteinpow.com. Please feel free to print this out and stick it in your fridge if you want. The list will allow you to convert any and all recipes found in this website without requiring you to buy a measuring scale or a bunch of measuring cups/spoons. Win win, right?
Please let me know if you need any other ingredients converted by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading ‘CONVERT THIS!’ I’ll then gladly measure your ingredient and turn it into either cups or grams. The point here is to make cooking easy, hassle-free and fun for you, so please do get in touch if you have any questions.
Do bear in mind that it was me who personally measured ALL of the ingredients in the above sheet so let me know if you find any errors! I double and triple measured everything so I doubt there are some but to err is human so get in touch if you think something needs tweaking :-)
This guide will appear in the new version of the Protein Pow App! It’ll show up as an update in the iOS store within the next couple of weeks. Exciting times.
