How many cup is 16 Ounces

How many ounces, what is the weight of the product if measured in cups? Such questions are often asked by those who bake with imported recipes. But accuracy in recipes is very important, what to do when faced with unusual metric systems. Below is a universal tip that I use myself. It is based on information from the Allrecipes website , plus my own observations and measurements.

When I say “cup” I mean the classic culinary cup. Sets of 4 cups are often sold in food stores. Most often they include a whole cup, half a cup, a third and a quarter - all in the form of identical cups with a long handle of different sizes. Now about the metric systems.

**Basic **

1 oz = 28.34 g

1 lb = 453 g

1 g = .035 oz

1 kg = 2.2 lbs

1 fl oz = 29.57 ml

1 cup = 240 ml

Abbreviations and English names

Ounce - ounce - oz

Pound - pound - lb

Cup - cup - with

Compliance:

1 stick = 113.5g = 1/4 lb = 4 ounces = 1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons = 14 teaspoons

And in English:

1 stick = 113.5 g = 1/4 lb = 4 oz = 1/2 cup = 8 tablespoons = 14 teaspoons

The most accurate recipes are those where products are measured in grams, pounds or ounces. Because different foods have different weights when measured with cups or spoons. However, you can try to describe the most basic ones.

Butter

1 cup butter = 2 sticks = 8 ounces = 227 g

1/4 cup butter = 57 g
1/3 cup butter = 76 g
1/2 cup butter = 113 g

Flour of the highest grade of Ukrainian or Russian production

1 cup = 5 ounces = 144 g

1/2 cup = 2.5 ounces = 72g

1/3 cup = 1.7 ounces = 48 g

1/4 cup = 1.27 oz = 36 g

1/8 cup = 2 tablespoons = 0.63 ounces = 18 g

An important point! A cup of sifted flour will be about 8-10 g lighter and will be 134-136 g

Sugar sand of Ukrainian or Russian production

1 cup = 6.9 ounces = 195 g

1/2 cup = 3.5 ounces = 98g

1/3 cup = 2.3 ounces = 65g

1/4 cup = 1.7 oz = 49 g

Inconsistency

Another important nuance. Americans estimate the weight of a cup of flour as 128 g. Our product is heavier. Moreover, I weighed both ordinary flour, premium, and super-fine grinding. That is, when baking according to American recipes, it is worth taking a spoonful of flour from our cup somewhere to match the weight.

Syrups and honey

Thick syrups and honey are significantly heavier than water, this will affect their weight when measured in cups

2 tbsp. spoons - 43 g

1/4 cup - 85g

1/3 cup - 113 g

1/2 cup - 170g

1 cup - 340g
