Weight Conversions for Common Baking Ingredients

It's easy to get confused when attempting to make UK and European recipes with US measuring methods or vice versa. Some dry ingredients such as flour and sugar are measured by weight in the UK and Europe, but by volume in the US. A recipe for Irish Soda Bread, for example, that calls for 12 oz. whole grain flour would require 2-2/3 cups of flour. So it's handy to have a conversion chart taped to the inside of your cabinet door.
