I love looking through all of the recipes that are posted here and cant wait to give some ago. I would love to know how many grams does 1 cup of butter or shortening weigh. Is there anywhere where I can convert these measurements to metric.

Just put it into google 'how many g in one American cup of butter' usually get an answer from wiki or yahoo as the first result.
Be sure to specify the ingrediant! Usually the answer is for an American cup anyway, but different countries cups are different sizes!

Usually the FDA nutrition label gives you serving in cups or tablespoon and then grams. I wanted to know the weight of a cup of old fashioned quaker oatmeal. The label had a serving of ½ cup equal to 40g, 1 cup would then equal 8o grams.

Gotta love those labels!
