What's a Quarter Cup in Grams

A quarter means the one fourth part of a unit which is called “cup”. Generally a quarter is equal to the 1/4th part of something, for example a quarter of sugar or a quarter of an ounce. A cup is the measuring unit for the volume and is equal to either 16 tablespoons or 8 fluid ounces. (Source: wikipedikia.org)


Sometimes when I’m not sure about a recipe but want to try it anyway, I scale down the recipe to 50% of the original. In those circumstances, I found it very difficult to calculate 50% of 3/4 cup, or to measure 50% of 1.5 tablespoon, etc. Then I found this handy table in my “Baking for Dummies” book. For instance 3/4th of a cup is equal to 12 tablespoons, so half of it would be 6 tablespoons.

If you are beginner in cooking, I would recommend measuring all the ingredients and preparing them before you start making the recipes. Once you get used to the process and method of cooking and you get some knowledge, you can go by andaaz method (eyeballing the ingredients). But still for baking recipes, desserts or to get the perfect restaurant style taste, I highly advise to measure the ingredients properly. (Source: www.spiceupthecurry.com)

Chocolate Cake

Whether you’re baking a chocolate cake, whipping up a pumpkin pie for Halloween or you’re making a delicious key lime pie for dessert, you’ll be glad to know that our cups to grams converter can convert everything from flour, to milk, to butter and sugar.

Please be aware that the list of ingredient options included in the converter and reference charts are approximations, meaning the result you receive will be an estimate. You can see more conversions on the baking ingredient conversions page. For the purposes of clarification, we reference the US cup (236.588 mL) in our reference charts above.

Use this page as a reference for converting between US cups, grams, ounces, pounds, tablespoons and teaspoons. Measuring ingredients by weight (grams or ounces) rather than volume (cups or tablespoons) will often provide more accurate measurements.

You can buy cup measurers in your local supermarket, but even the keenest bakers might not have one in their cupboard. The UK uses completely different standards of measurement to the US, so anytime you attempt to use an American recipe, you’re likely to run into some trouble as the weights and measures vary quite a bit.
