This chart gives you the volume, grams and ounces of ingredients.  I will be adding more ingredients as we go along. These are the exact measurements we used at the bakery so I know they are accurate and accepted in the industry.

I encourage everyone to use scales.  It is so much faster and more accurate than volume. Volume is good for liquids and there is a chart for that.

Do not fall into the trap of thinking dry and liquid ounces are the same.  They are not.
