So this post will be non recipe, but I'll explain something that is tied to cooking.
I'll try to post some cooking tips like this in the future.
I recieved many e-mails in which people are asking me to do conversion from EU measures to US (grams to cups), and I think that measures are very important, ecpecially when tou make desserts.
So roughly this is the list:
There's different measures for different ingredients, it's because of their volume.
Granulated sugar: 200 grams = 1 cup
Brown sugar: 220 grams = 1 cup, packed
Sifted white flour: 125 grams = 1 cup
White rice, uncooked: 185 grams = 1 cup
White rice, cooked: 175 grams = 1 cup
Butter: 227 grams = 1 cup
Almonds, slivered: 108 grams = 1 cup
Oil: 224 grams = 1 cup
Maple syrup: 322 grams = 1 cup
Milk, non-fat: 245 grams = 1 cup
Milk, sweetened condensed: 306 grams = 1 cup
Broccoli, flowerets: 71 grams = 1 cup
Raisins: 165 grams = 1 cup
Milk, dry: 68 grams = 1 cup
Yogurt: 245 grams = 1 cup
Water: 236 grams = 1 cup
Confectioners sugar: 110 g = 1 cup
Cocoa: 125 g = 1 cup
And about ounce well this is roughly calculated: 1 Ounce = 28.5 Grams.
Actually I've tried some recipes which are in cups, and I calculated the ingredients in grams by this table and it worked fine.
Also there are many web sites which have converters so you can get more accurate measures.
Hope this helps:-)
