I want to make the sourdough cinammon raisin bread but the measurements are in grams which I am not familiar with. Why aren’t the measurements in cup measurements.
Bread baking generally requires some precision. Depending on how compressed your flour is a cup of flour can vary by a very large amount. Most bread bakers will weight their ingredients for the most precision and better results. It also saves having to clean measuring cups and spoons.
Here are some conversions for you. Some I had memorized and others I googled.
1 cup flour is 130 grams
1 cup water is 236 grams
1 teaspoon salt is 6 grams
1 cup raisins is 150 grams
1 cup maple syrup is 120 grams
1 cup starter is 300 grams
Thank you so much !!
Here is a great web page for converting almost anything. https://www.inchcalculator.com/ I have converted most of my recipes to pounds and ounces, but grams are much more accurate.
