Weight Of Cup Of Flour

Cup Of Flour

Used in baking for all types of recipes from breads to cakes, measuring the correct amounts of flour is critical.

So, how much does a cup of flour weigh?

One cup of all-purpose flour weighs approximately 4.51507 ounces (128 grams).

It’s important to know that weights can vary depending on a number of factors:

  • How was the flour measured out
  • The brand of flour
  • The measuring cup itself

The most accurate way to measure flour is to scoop out the flour from the bag and pour it into a dry-ingredient measuring cup. Level the top off with a metal spatula.

If you dip the measuring cup into the bag of flour, the weight can be as much as one ounce heavier. That can make a huge difference in certain recipes.

~ Fun Fact ~

A single bushel of wheat will make around 42 pounds of white flour or 60 pounds of whole wheat flour.
