Baking Ingredient Weight and Volume Chart

Baking Ingredient Weight and Volume Chart for your baking needs: Most baking professionals will weigh their ingredients with a digital scale versus using measuring cups and spoons. Mainly because they are baking in huge batches. When you’re baking in your home kitchen, bakers tend to use recipes that call for cups and teaspoons because it is a small batch.

Keep in mind, there is no right or wrong way to measure your ingredients! Stick with what the recipe calls for. Use measuring cups when the recipe calls for cups. Use a digital scale when the recipe calls for an ingredient’s weight.

When a baking ingredient gets very low, using the metric system for weighing will help! It can be measured in very small amounts. Most digital scales will have a function that will allow you to switch to the metric system.
