I love it when a recipe is in weights instead of volumes. Does anyone know of a chart for basic ingredient weights, ie.-a cup of flour, a cup of sugar, etc.? My scale weighs in both grams and ounces, so either one would be helpful. Weighing ingredients is so much more precise than measuring.
You can also take your own recipes and weigh them and write it down as you go. For example, I know that my sugar cookie recipe takes 17.5oz of flour and 8oz butter. The sugar I measure in cups, because it's easy and non-messy!
you can google flour conversions or whatever and it will give you weights. I have a book from when I was in pastry school that has a chart. you have to remember to stir the flour before weighing it.
