  3. Is the volume of normal cup different to dry cup ?
    What is a dry cup size compared to the ordinary cup ?

    Can any one explain to me what is the difference in size between dry cup and liquid cup in the measures? How different is liquid cup to the dry cup in measuring flour amount or any other ingredient? Or to put it this way, what is the volume of dry cups compared to volume of liquid cups. They should be the same in the amount sense shouldn’t they? Thank you.

  4. Dry cup versus liquid cup

    Both cup and dry cup have the same volume.

    The difference is applied only in what either of these measuring cups is being used for. What the cup measuring tool is designed to be used for, technically. For example the dry-cup lets you to fill it right to the rim so you can scrape off the excess e.g. a flour type. While the liquid-cup ( cup ) allows you to basically fill it to the cup mark without the risk of spilling a liquid out, the mark is well below the uppermost edge of the container. Anything else than that, there isn’t any difference between dry cup and normal cup and, the volume of these two cup types is or should be the same.

  5. Hi Convert, ta for the dry cup versus liquid cup explanation. It is exactly what i searched Google for! Your answer is the best from what I found.

  6. I was also looking for the same answer about the ordinary cup vs dry cup differences, so thanks for the explaining. I’ve always thought both cups are having the same size and that neither dry cup or liquid cup of the same system could be larger nor smaller in their actual volume measure. Now I know I am always spot on right :)

  7. Super that you are adding carbs to kcal conversions options in your converters. I think many people will find this very useful as I do. Same for the total carbohydrates – sugars, protein, fat, cholesterol levels and dietary fiber ( or is it fibre ? ) that the page is capable to show for each food product.

  11. The details above and the explanation about measuring differences between the 2 types of cups the cup and the dry cup are correct, I second all of that. If I may add: level measures, or dry cups in question, are generally used for dry measures for instance flours. In cooking and recipe ingredients measuring or conversion of the amounts, dry and wet or liquid measures are always the same in the volume amount. This goes for the cups and the same applies also for dry or liquid teaspoons or for dry or wet tablespoons. But everyone knows that the measuring results obtained by the dry versus the liquid or wet methods, but THIS IS PRIMARILY applied out in a shop or at the fresh food markets NOT in the kitchen, for the same fruit will very likely be much different. The dry cup method measure produces values that are 16% lower. And liquid-wet measures are 16% higher when compared with dry. It has also one advantage for using a fresh produce for cooking at home or for business; dry cup of ei. apples after they are cleaned becomes the cooking dry or liquid cup … hence minus the 16% has become magnificent helping hand in my life!

  12. Thanks guys for the how to convert dry cup to cup used in a recipe. Spending lots for what’s cooking this weekend so I just wanted to double check. Now I know I was always using either wet or dry looking only at what volume I get, which is right … basics; in us system liquid cup converts into dry cup @ 100% both have the same volume which translates to – 8 fluid ounce us fl oz – 0.50 pint liquid us pt – 0.25 quart liquid qt – 236.59 milliliters ml per us cup or equals to 250 ml if metric cup.

  13. Dry measuring cups verses wet measuring cups and which is bigger or which one of these two is smaller. It was always a common question people may ask. I use any in either way, wet for flour or dry for liquids. My dry cup measure takes 5 cups volume but the wet cup measure I have takes only 1 cup. That’s completely enough for me kitchen and cooking. I always knew since childhood that the drycup equals wetcup exactly equally.

    Comment from/about : Rod | Permalink

  14. Is dry cup same as standard cup?

    Yes definitely dry cups vs liquid cups amount both share exactly the same line mark. Anybody can test it simply by pouring for example water from one cup to another cup. There are no differences in their volume. The difference how each cup looks comes into the account when dry ingredients like flour for instance and liquid ingredients like milk for example are being measured although again this too may not need to be requirement. The actual flour ingredient amount does not have to be converted between the 2 cups or in other words conversions from dry to liquid cup are not necessity as their volume is the same. I am surprised that people have an issue with this, it must be an Europian thing :) I know I was born in there…

  17. Thanks for the answer on how to differentiate the cup to dry cup and how can these 2 types of cups be actually used for measuring ingredients for cooking without conversion necessary. I did think that the wet/liquid cup is the same as dry cup in the actual volume and that there’s no wet vs. dry measuring cup difference for adding flour for instance.

  21. Valuable calculators for flour weight volume equivalent measures for baking but also any other powder or fluid style based recipes. Most often when I bake I must do flour conversion weight cups mainly to scale from grammes ( g ) into ounces ( oz ) but normally it always comes to all common varieties including in pounds ( lbs ), kilograms ( kgs), dekagrams ( dkgs ) of flour, you name it. So basically all this is a part of good/proper equipment and always very helpful.

  22. Thank you for flour conversions:

    1 ounce ( oz ) of flour equals 28.35 gram ( g ) of flour. Fraction : 28 7/20 gram ( g ).

    2 ounces ( oz ) of flour equals 56.70 grams ( g ) of flour. Fraction : 56 7/10 grams ( g ) of flour.

    3 ounces ( oz ) of flour converted = 85.05 grams ( g ) of flour, fraction is 85 1/20 gram ( g ) of flour.

    4 ounces ( oz ) of flour = 113.40 grams ( g ) of flour = 113 2/5 gram ( g ) of flour.

    5 ounces ( oz ) of flour equals to 141.75 grams ( g ) of flour. Fraction number is 141 3/4 gram ( g ) of flour.

    Conversion of 6 ounces ( oz ) of flour equals to 170.10 grams ( g ) of flour = 170 1/10 gram ( g ).

    Amount 7 ounce ( oz ) of flour = 198.45 grams ( g ) of flour and the fraction is 198 9/20 gram ( g ).

    8 ounces ( oz ) of flour = 226.80 grams ( g ) = 226 4/5 gram ( g )

    9 ounces ( oz ) of flour = 255.15 grams ( g ) = 255 3/20 gram ( g )

    10 ounces ( oz ) of flour = 283.50 grams ( g ) = 283 1/2 gram ( g )

    0.5 kilogram ( kg ) of flour equals 17.64 ounces ( oz ) of flour, fraction is 17 16/25 ounce ( oz ) of flour.

    Amount 1 kilo ( kg ) of flour converted weights 35.27 ounces ( oz ) of flour = 35 27/100 ounce ( oz ) of flour.

    Amount 1.5 kilos ( kg ) of flour equals to 52.91 ounces ( oz ) of flour or 52 91/100 ounce ( oz ).

    2 kilograms ( kg ) of flour weights 70.55 ounce ( oz ) of flour after conversion, 70 11/20 ounces ( oz ) flour.

    Comment from/about : Alli the cake baker: question about cake flour? | Permalink

  30. Before I make the cake flour weight/volume converter (thank you for the suggestion) please use the rye flour calculator instead, link is above. Cake and rye flours are very similar in their weight measure. 1 cup (US) of cake flour is 100g and rye flour is 102 grams per US cup. Very similar, almost the same. Just convert into your units that you are most comfortable with.

    Cake flour: 100 grams ( g ) per cup Equals: 3.53 ounces ( oz ).
    Fraction : 3 53/100 ounce (oz)

    Rye flour: 102 grams ( g ) per cup Equals: 3.60 ounces ( oz ).
    Fraction : 3 3/5 ounce (oz)

    So cake flour is lighter in the weight but also in its color, than for instance the all purpose AP or plain flour, because it contains less gluten. Therefore cake flour will be thinner if a same water is added into it as into other flour types. this is due to a higher content of protein they have, which cakeflour lucks.

  46. Is there supposed to be some difference between one cup of unsifted flour as compared to the same cup measure of sifted flour? Roland

    Yes sifted flour makes the cup lighter in weight. Unsifted volume measure is heavier and a cup of flour scooped into the cup becomes even more heavier because the flour is much denser, more firmply packed into the cup measure (as if pushed into).

  47. If I need to use all purpose flour instead off cake flour, how much less of the all purpse flour should I use per 250 ml of cake flour?


    added by admin: Hi Erica, less by 30 ml (2 tbsp), basically you would use 220 ml of all purpose flour exactly, to replace 250ml of CF. Even though it is best to stick with whatever flour type a recipe calls for, this substitution with all purpose flour for cake flour works very well.

    1 cup of all purpose flour minus 2 tablespoons (1 c — 2 tbsp’s) replaces 1 cup of cake flour.

    1 cup equals 16 tablespoons. So in other words:

    14 tbsp of all purpose flour = 1 cup of CF
    2 cups minus 4 tbsp’s, or 28 tbsp of all purpose flour is substituting for 2 cups of CF

    Measure also sieved like with any other flour, not dipped. I will make some converter for substituting types of flours and will move this text to the main flour types page.

    So basically formula to calculate subbing all purpose flour for CF goes 7 to 8 (700 grams of APF instead of 800 grams of CF. Or 350 g of All Purpose Flour substitutes for 400 g of CF and so on. More conversion examples:

    1.4 kg of all purpose flour goes for 1.6 kg of cake flour
    1000 g of APF = 1140 grams of CF
    1 kilogram of CF = 875 grams of all purpose flour

    7 oz of all purpose flour substitutes for 8 oz of CF
    0.7 pound of all purpose flour substitutes for 0.8 pound of CF

  58. What is the difference between regular flour or APF all purpose flour and cake flour?

    To suit your specific purpose

    To exchange 4-1/2 cups of all purpose flour for usual cake flour :

    Quick math: 4.5 c = 72 tbsp. 16 cups APF = 14 cups cake flour. 72 tbsp APF = 63 tbsp of cake flour. 63 tbsp = 3.9 cups (exactly 3.9375 cups = 13.9 ounces [oz net wt] of cake flour ~ 14 cups rounded).

    Therefore …

    4-1/2 cups (or 4.5 c) of bleached sifted APF = 3.9 cups of cake flour (or 3-1/9th ~ 3-1/8 though slightly wetter cake) which makes it 13.9 oz (ounces net wt.) of cake flour.

    Cake flour is more delicate in a sense that it has finer texture and usually it is also bleached. Hence the finer texture of cakes made with using cake flour. I would use cake flour only if it was unbleached though, it’s healthier but it is me I do not mind to compromise with the cake finesse quality judged marginally lower.

    If a culinary formula calls for all purpose flour when you have none at home, so you want to substitute the APF with cake flour, which absorbs moisture in a bit better (such as water or butter), you can substitute three quarters of a cup of bleached sifted all purpose flour with added two tablespoons of cornstarch for every one cup of cake flour.

    The other way around – you can substitute 1 cup of ready made cake flour type with 3/4 cup of bleached all purpose flour plus 2 tbsp cornstarch.

    cup = 16 tbsp of all purpose flour contains:
    3/4 cup = 12 tbsp of plain bleached flour PLUS
    1/8 cup = 2 tbsp cornstarch

    3/4 cup which is 12 tbsp volume of all purpose flour + 2 tbsp of cornstarch mixed together (making 14 tbsp of cake flour) converts into 1 cup (or 16 table spoons) of all purpose flour total. In other words, for every cup of cake flour use 3/4 cup of bleached all purpose flour with 2 tbsp of cornstarch.

  59. Label on whole wheat pastry flour says a 1/4 cup serving = 30g.
    It also says there are 45 servings in the 48 oz (3 pound) 1.35Kg bag.

    Is there a flour type I can use in your converter that matches a whole wheat pastry flour? If not, can you create a conversion for this type of flour?

    I want to make some whole wheat pasta, and the recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat pastry flour. Can I just weigh out 180g and that will equal what I need (30g x 4 x 1.5)?

    Your guidance and math skills is greatly appreciated.
