100g Flour To Cups


For the conversion of 100g flour to cups, I would say most of the time the small differences don’t change anything. For example, you can replace 100g flour with something more or less like 110g And still have the same taste.

As a cooking lover, you always find some recipes on the internet that can be viewed in either metric ( ie. grams) or imperial (ie. pounds and ounces) measurements. Because there are so many recipes from different countries.


If you would like to use the American “cups” method of measurement, the conversions below can be used as a guideline for non-liquid ingredients.

Officially, a US Cup is 240ml (or 8.45 imperial fluid ounces.) This is slightly different from an Australian, Canadian and South African Cup which is 250ml. As long as you use the same cup for measuring out each of your ingredients, the proportions should work out the same.

Plain Flour, Self Raising Flour, Wholemeal Flour, Caster Sugar, Raw Cacao, Seeds, Dried Fruit

1/8 cup = 16 g
1/4 cup = 32 g
1/3 cup = 43 g
1/2 cup = 64 g
2/3 cup = 85 g
3/4 cup = 96 g
1 cup = 128 g

Cornflour, Ground nuts, Bread Flour, Gluten Free Flours, Crushed Biscuits, Protein Powder, Cocoa Nibs, Grated Mozzerella

1/4 cup = 30 g
1/3 cup = 40 g
1/2 cup = 60 g
2/3 cup = 80 g
3/4 cup = 90 g
1 cup =  120 g

Bread Flour
1/4 cup = 34 g
1/3 cup = 45 g
1/2 cup = 68 g
1 cup = 136 g

Granulated Sugar, Brown Sugar, Palm Sugar, Raisins, Sultanas, Agave Nectar

1/4 cup = 50 g
1/3 cup = 67 g
1/2 cup = 105 g
2/3 cup = 134 g
3/4 cup = 150 g
1 cup = 210 g


Icing Sugar, Rye Flour

1/4 cup = 25 g
1/3 cup = 35 g
1/2 cup = 50 g
2/3 cup = 70 g
3/4 cup = 75 g
1 cup = 100 g


So finally a quick word about the pros and cons: I myself tend to go back and forth between using my cups and using a scale, is it really depends on what you’re doing. for example: if you’re making a caramel sauce, you need to be very precise. So I would personally use a scale for such a thing.

If consistency is important to you, and you want to achieve a perfect cake or cookie every single time, then I suggest that you use a scale and measure things in grams so that you get this exact same amount per batch. But if you’re looking for a rough estimate of what goes in a recipe, for example, a chocolate chip cookie where you roughly want 2 cups of chocolate chips but if there are a little bit more nobody will mind then definitely use cups.

Using measuring cups is a very visual way of measuring ingredients this is perfect for getting kids involved into baking because they love just how interactive it all is cups are more fun, I have to say that.

So I personally love using both professionals, prefer obviously the scale because of the preciseness and consistency that you achieve per recipe, but kids and people that aren’t getting into baking certainly like using cups. So it’s really up to you and what you’re trying to achieve, so that’s it I hope you found this useful.
