Flour Weights Sunday, February 28, 2021, 10:07 AM


There is a lot of disagreement on flour weights. LA Times' article talks about it and identifies the following:

Source 1 cup flour
King Arthur Flour 120 grams
Bake From Scratch 125 grams
Washington Post 126 grams
The New York Times 128 grams
Bon Appétit 130 grams 136 grams
The L.A. Times; Cook’s Illustrated1 142 grams

For the most part, I prefer to follow King Arthur Flour and, whenever possible, I measure by weight as specified in the recipe. So if a Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen has a recipe calling for "3 cups of flour or 15 oz" (where 15 oz is 425.243 grams), I will use 15 oz and not 12.7 oz (360 grams @ 120 grams/oz).

For my Dad's recipes, he seems to use the 142 as well. Again, go by weight (unless I note otherwise)

  1. And presumably America's Test Kitchen, Cooks Country, etc
