Thanks

Dp was going to bake a loaf (scales are broken)

He says he'd rather wait through fear of cocking up what will take a lot of effort!

A heaped tbsp is 1 oz flour.

A generous level tbsp is 1oz sugar.

So if making a cake you would do 4 oz butter, 4 level tbsp sugar, 2 eggs and 4 heaped tbsp flour.

Count 26-28g as 1 oz.

One heaped tbs on my scales is between 30-40g

Is it an unopened bag of flour?

1cup (average size mug) =200g=8oz how much do you need ?

1tbs is 1 ounce

Butter already has measurements on

You can google cup recipes to

Does anyone have any conversion tips? (ie 1tbs = 100g or something)

Cheers!
