# Conversion Cooking Help?!

Question: Conversion Cooking Help?
I need help converting this from Grams into Cups!

300g self-raising flour
150g grated cheese
30g freshly grated Parmesan
80g cold unsalted butter, diced
250mL cold buttermilk

Thank you so much! Does anyone have a good site or cookbook that helps with conversions?

Hi. 28 grams equal one ounce. thus 56 grams would equal 2 oz. This is for dry measure only, as liquid measures would result in a different quantity of the item, and really just a completely different scale of measurement. Therefore 280 grams would be 10 oz. leaving 20 grams difference. If it were 21 grams leftover you would have 3/4 of an oz. So your 1st ingredient calls for 10 3/4 oz of self raising flour, or 1 cup plus 1/4 cup plus 3/4 of an oz. so as the other poster says 1 1/3 cups would be slightly to much. You would be closer to 1 1/4 cups with a teaspoon more. 150 grams of grated cheese equates to 5.35 oz or just under 3/4 cup. 30 grams equates to 1 oz. as the difference there is negligible. 80 grms of butter is equal to 2.85 oz-so thats equal to 3 oz of butter or 3/4 of a stick. 250ml equals a shade over exactly one cup (8 liquid oz.)
1 3/4 c self-raising flour
3/4 c grated cheese
1 oz Parmesan
3/4 stick of butter
1 cup of cold buttermilk

1 1/3 cup flour (300 g)
2/3 cup grated cheese (150 g)
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan (30 g)
1/3 cup butter (80 g)
1 cup buttermilk (250 mL)

Please note the above is an estimate. It can get complicated to convert grams into cups because grams are measurements of weight and a cup is a measurement of volume. So because all foods have different weights, there's no way to accurately convert X-amount grams to X-amount cups.

However, mL's are volumetric measurements too and can be converted easily. Here's my favorite online measurement converter. http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/cooking-conversions/conversions.aspx

If you are going to be cooking a lot using recipes expressed in grams, you would be better off purchasing a small digital scale that measures in ounces and grams. Most big retailers sell small sets perfect for home cooks for around \$20... well worth the headache of trying to calculate conversions all day :)

Good luck!

About 125 grams in a cup of flour, so you are looking at just under 2 1/2 cups (2.4 cups) flour

1 1/3 cups cheese

1/4 cup parm

2/3 stick of butter

1 cup buttermilk
