I want to learn baking for my family in Pastry & Baking Posted June 9, 2015 THIS SO MUCH THIS. Why can't hardly any websites that I want to cook their recipes use weights, dammit! I've gotten used to doing the conversions myself – a lot of things, I have memorized, but I also have a few handy conversion sites bookmarked. Funny thing is I have a blog and even though I prefer to work with weights, since the majority of my readers are in the US and use volume measurements, that's the way I set it up. I'm planning to include both in the future, though. Trying to figure out the most logical way to lay it out. That said, while working with weights is easy and much more accurate, it's absolutely possible to get good results using measuring cups. Maybe not consistent results, but certainly edible!
