Can someone convert this recipe for me into cups? or at least close to it. I really don't understand the oz to cup ratio.

Thanks a bunch

8 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 whole eggs
3/4 cup plain whole milk yogurt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
8 ounces sugar
10 ounces grated parsnips

In order to convert between weight units and volume units, you have to know how much a given volume of that ingredient weighs.

Here's a site that'll get you started: Flour volume vs weight conversions | Grams | Ounces | Cups | Pounds | Kilograms | Quarts

You do know the difference between weight ounces and liquid ounces right?

Yes, it's converting them that is the problem.

Use your hops scale.

No offense, very handy for baking. Most of the really good bread recipes measure flour by weight, not by volume.

Also very handy when your recipe calls for 3.2% Saaz and 8.3% Glacier is what you got.

It's a good tool to have.
