Convert butter measurements to grams

Do you need to instantly convert a quantity of butter to grams? A cup, a chopstick, a tablespoon… whatever it is, you can figure out how much butter you need and quickly measure it out in grams.

butter in grams

1 cup butter in grams (and parts of a cup)

1 cup butter in grams = 250 Grams (AUSTRALIAN recipes) = 1 block

1 cup butter in grams = 225 Grams (US recipes) = 2 sticks

Note that the following conversions are based on an Australian cup measurement. If using a US prescription, please do your own calculations using the points above.

4 cups of butter in grams = 1000 grams = 1 kg

2 cups butter in grams = 500 grams

3/4 (three quarters) cup of butter in grams = 185 grams

2/3 (two-thirds) cup of butter in grams = 165 grams

1/2 (half) cup butter in grams = 125 grams

1/3 (third) cup of butter in grams = 85 grams

1/4 (quarter) cup of butter in grams = 60 grams

Spoon measurements in grams

1 teaspoon of butter in grams = 5 grams

1 tablespoon of butter in grams = 10 grams

1 tablespoon of butter in grams = 20 grams (AUSTRALIAN recipes)

1 tablespoon butter in grams = 15 grams (US recipes)

How many grams of butter is in an ounce and a pound?

Or use my pound to gram conversion chart and calculator.

piece of butter in grams

1 stick of butter in grams = 110g

2 sticks of butter in grams = 225g

In Australia we generally have blocks of butter equivalent to a cup of butter (250 grams) rather than sticks.

How about unsalted butter, ghee butter and margarine?

These conversions apply to regular salted butter, but should also serve as a general guideline for unsalted butter, ghee butter (clarified butter), and margarine.

Still confused?

I’ve never quite understood why a recipe calls for half a cup of butter when a round stick clearly won’t fit in a square hole — or in this case, a rectangular stick of butter can’t be squeezed into a measuring cup.

I know, I know. You can soften it and puree it.

But seriously, why would you do that when you can chop up little blocks and measure them out on a nice scale like this one:

And then there are the overseas recipes or old recipes that call for sticks, ounces and all sorts of things.

It’s all VERY confusing.
