Weighing ingredients gives you the most accurate, reproducible (and tasty) results (especially in baking), but not all recipes list their measurements by mass. Luckily, King Arthur Flour has put together a handy weight chart for a wide variety of ingredients.
You are watching: How many grams in a teaspoon of baking powder
Click the link below for the full list of conversions (it’s gigantic) but some of the most useful ones are:
Unbleached All-Purpose Flour: 1 cup = 4 1/4 ounces = 120 grams Self-Rising Flour: 1 cup = 4 ounces = 113 gramsBaking powder: 1 teaspoon = 4 gramsBaking soda: 1/2 teaspoon = 3 grams Butter: 1/2 cup =1 stick = 4 ounces = 113 gramsSugar (granulated white): 1 cup = 7 ounces = 198 grams
Just find your ingredient on the list, convert the measurement from volume to mass using the values given, and follow the rest of the recipe as usual, without having to wonder if your scoop and scrape technique is on point.

I can see getting all hung up on weights if I was, say, a pastry chef or something, but when I’m baking bread I go by the feel of the dough rather than strict volumes/weights.
