It is difficult to imagine a baking recipe without flour. Flour, almost always in fact, is the main ingredient. What should you do if you have no scales or measuring cups? How can you weigh flour without scale? You always can use spoons. We will teach you how you can quickly measure the required amount of flour with spoons. You will learn how many grams are there in full spoon of flour and how to bake your favorite dessert without using scales.

All the calculations were made using all-purose flour.

You can come across different recipes while browsing around the web. Some of them have ingredients listed in cups and spoons and the rest measure them by weight instead of volume. So, if you are like me and got used to cooking using measuring spoons/cups instead of scales (or simply you have none), this post was made exactly for you. You`ve got a great opportunity to learn how you can determine necessary amount of flour using a simple tablespoon.

All the given numbers and calculations were acquired for metric spoons. It means that we used a tablespoon with volume of 15 ml, dessertspoon 10 ml and a teaspoon 5 ml. Do not panic, if you have no spoons that are considered ‘metric’, as your average tablespoon in a cupboard is more likely to have volume around or exactly 15 ml.

How many grams are in a tablespoon of flour?

One tablespoon holds 8 grams of flour.

How many grams of flour does a dessertspoon hold?

One dessertspoon holds 5.30 grams of flour.

How many grams of flour are in a teaspoon?

One teaspoon holds 2.60 grams of flour.

Now, you know the weight of flour per spoon, so let`s see how you can measure flour without scales and a measuring cup. The formula to use is pretty simple:

Divide the weight of flour listed in ingredients by the weight of flour in one spoon.

For example, if your recipe requires 138 grams of flour, you need to divide 138 by 8. The result is 17.25 or 17 ¼ (seventeen and a quarter tablespoons), it is the amount of tablespoons of flour you need for your recipe.
