# fast help... 12oz Cake Flour = how many cups?

Between all my books and all the different websites online - I'm getting some contradictory info, or at least some very confusing info...

The sad thing is - it's not that hard. I'm just second guessing myself now after looking at so many different conversion charts.

After you find out, you really should go buy a kitchen scale. Items like flour and powdered sugar are best measured out by weight, not by volume.

Do you have a digital scale to weigh yourself? If so, step on the scale holding an empty cup. Now fill the cup to what you think is close and weigh yourself holding the cup again.

Definatley weigh your ingredients, Much more accurate than using cups.
4 oz of flour, both ap and cake flour, equal one cup (according to King Arthur Flour). All ingredients should be weighed for accuracy because the size of cups do vary.

Thanks, bakers ! I appreciate the help & the tips!

I do plan to get a scale. And once I have it, I'll know how much a cup of flour should weigh!

Thanks again!

I usually use this site as a guide. It isn't gospel but it's pretty accurate I find. I cross reference with other cookbooks as well to get an average,

I use 4.5 for AP flour and 4.1 for cake flour. If the cake flour is sifted first, then it is 3.5 oz.

All these weights are taken from several different books, but the ones I remember off the top of my head are Bakewise, who has a completely listing in the back of the book, and The Cake Bible.

I figure as long as I am consistent it will work out. Besides I weigh my ingredients. I don't like it when a recipe just puts down volume and not weight, so I convert everything I bake.

According to Google (which I live by lol) 12 US fluid ounces = 1.5 US cups

If you type in the conversion you want google will pull up a conversion calculator. I do however agree with the previous posts and I would try and get a good kitchen scale. I love mine. It really helps me to convert tons of recipes.

good luck
