Flour volume versus weight conversions

What to measure, weight with scales or volume with cups?

If a bag of whole wheat or wholemeal flour from the local shop tells you that the weight of one quarter of a cup is 30 grams and that makes it 4.2 ounces or 120 grams per one cup. But how would you know if the density/weight is correct when you are filling your cup? And that's 5.66 or 5 2/3 cups per 1.5 pound or 680 grams of flour, 2.2 pounds into 1 kilogram (1000 grams) or 22pounds to 10Kg for larger batch of dough. If you push it harder into the cup for instance, consequently the weight gets much higher, easy as that. This is well known in culinary arts practice.

Volume methods for measuring amount of flour produce various results. Depending on flour density and not just on the amount, a packed up cup with flour gets much higher weight compared with a weight of sifted flour. This is the reason why bakers relay on weight measures for dry ingredients, they want to produce all batches the same. Those interested in happy baking, best to consider these facts and, better to invest in buying kitchen scales for absolutely much better results. They cost just a few bucks. Also, if a flour is simply scooped by a cup it gets packed towards the cup floor and the amount is different again instead of being an exact measure as it should.

Flour and the Cosmopolitania

In Australia the all-purpose flour is called plain flour or simply white flour, weight of these is 125 grams per 1 cup. Same goes for the whole wheat flour, in Australian it's called wholemeal flour, same products 120 grams per 1 cup. Any body calls flours slightly differently(?) .. please let us know so we can add it in here.
