Easily convert butter from US cups, sticks of butter and tablespoons and more to grams with these handy Butter Measurement Conversion Charts.
Most countries outside the US (and Canada), weigh their butter using scales which makes it very difficult to understand American recipes. American recipes vary so much on the measurements of butter referencing anything from a stick to a cup, teaspoon or tablespoon. Butter Measurement Conversion Charts for cups, tablespoons grams and ounces
I lose track all the time and end up Googling an answer when creating recipes. Even my recipes vary (having lived in both The US and Europe). I knew I couldn’t be the only one in need of quick answers, so in the charts below, I have tried to give a variety of different conversions in an attempt to clear up some of the confusion confusion.

Tips on Making Measuring and Weighing Butter
- To make it easier to convert yourself – Try memorizing one fact in each category so you can easily convert in your head. For example – 1/2 cup of butter equals 1 stick of butter so if a recipe calls for 2 sticks of butter, it will be pretty simple to work out in your head that 2 sticks is equal to 1 cup and so on.
- Try to get into the habit of weighing butter instead of adding it to measuring cups or using the guide on the package. It’s more accurate to use a scale.
