# I have a very frustrating recipe that calls for 400g of flour and 200g of sugar. How much is this in cups or tablespoons?

Question #100213. Asked by guitargoddess. (Oct 14 08 7:14 PM)

400g of flour = 3.125 (3 1/8) cups
200g of sugar(granulated) = 1 cup

Why not do it the simple way (sorry) and weigh the stuff? The tight or loose packing of stuff like flour, and the different granulation of sugar can make a difference to the quantity when measuring by volume (cups). Here in the UK and Europe, we usually only use 'cups' when desperately trying to make sense of an American recipe. (OK, the difference is going to be slight when baking a Victoria sponge for yourself - but volume is best suited to liquids, not solids. Do you measure butter in cups or ounces?)

Well, because I don't have a way of weighing things. I don't need 'cups', millilitres would be nice too. For butter, it depends. A recipe might say one pound of butter, or it might say 2 cups of butter, for example.
