How much does a cup of flour weigh? The answer depends upon the type of flour you're using. Unless you have a kitchen scale, you may need weight and volume conversions.

Proper ingredient measurements are especially important in baking where precision counts. An incorrect measurement can throw off a ratio and ruin a recipe.
