How Many Grams Are In One Stick of Butter?
The measurement markings on sticks of butter are very helpful, but not particularly useful when you need metric measurements instead of standard U.S. measurements.
We all know when we open a new stick of butter there are markings for 8 tablespoons, but if you're cooking from a recipe that uses metric measurements and calls for ingredients by weight it's helpful to know how many grams are in a stick of butter.
When looking at a standard stick of butter:
- 1 stick or 1/2 cup butter is equal to 4 ounces, or 113 grams.
Measuring butter, and most all ingredients for that matter, is always most accurately done using a kitchen scale.
