Dry measures:

For accuracy always use dry measuring cups, and not liquid measuring cups, especially when you bake. Since a cup of flour weighs less than a cup of sugar, to give you an approximate guideline for the dry weights we’ve used some basic staples so that your recipes come out as well for you as they do for us.

Basic Dry Goods Measures Cups Ounces Grams
All purpose flour 1 4.25 120g
Chickpea Flour 1 3.25 92g
Granulated sugar 1 7 200g
Confectioners/icing sugar 1 4.5 125g
