Sorry, but cups measure volume and not weight.
Every batter recipe would be different, depending on the combination of wet & dry ingredients.

A cup of my batter would likely not weigh the same as a cup of your batter--unless we've used exactly the same recipe.

FWIW I put 12 white scoops of batter (not mix based) in a half sheet pan x 1" deep.
