Johnny has it right there - 500g sugar = 2.5 cups, so 100g = 1/2 cup

1/2 cup

Here is how volume/weight conversions work. A gram is a unit of weight. A cup is a unit of volume. Volume is the amount of space an ingredient occupies and weight is the mass or "heaviness" of an ingredient.

500 grams of mini marshmallows = 10 cups
500 grams of flour = 4 cups
500 grams of sugar = 2.5 cups

As you can see, the weight for these ingredients are the same, yet the volumes are different. This is because each ingredient has a different density.

Here is another example:
A cup of feathers and a cup of lead pellets both occupy 8 fluid ounces of volume. The feathers will weigh a lot less than 8 ounces on a scale and the lead will weigh a lot more than 8 ounces on a scale.

Asking how many cups equal 100 grams would be the same as asking how many hours are in a 100 inches. Volume and weight are two completely different measurement systems... just as time and length are two different measurement systems. The only difference is that volume and weight can be linked through density.... mathematically speaking. Density = Mass divided by Volume. Density can change for the same ingredient. For example, a cup of sifted flour will weigh a lot less than a cup of unsifted flour. A pint of water will vary in weight depending on the temperature of the water.

There are websites that do volume/weight conversions based on density. Two great websites are:
http://www.onlineconversion.com and
http://www.gourmetsleuth.com or, you can look in a cookbook that has a volume/weight equivalency chart.

Some like to use it cup for cup. Authoritative opinion seems to be that 1 cup granulated sugar = 1/4 - 1/3 cup raw honey

How many cups is 100g of caster sugar?


100 Grams of caster sugar should be exactly 2 cups.

Here is a link to a fantastic website, you just choose the sugar and the measurement you want to weigh in, in the case grams and it tells you exactly how many cups. It has saved me a few times!

How many teaspoons in 200 grams of caster sugar


There is no direct conversion from teaspoons (volume) to grams (weight) unless you know what product you're using.
this site: shows caster sugar 1 cup = 200 grams. or 48 teaspoons.

Does anyone have a recipe for a basic cake frosting?


Here is my basic frosting recipe:

- 3 cups of sifted icing sugar (powdered sugar)

- 1/2 cup of butter or margarine (soft)

- 1/4 cup of milk

- 1tsp vanilla


Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Don't put all the milk in at once so you can use it a tablespoon at a time to get the texture right.

Lost instruction book


This is a custard base recipe
(using eggs and cream along with vanilla extract)

Ingredients:
4 egg yolks
1/2 pint (250ml) milk
1/2 pint (250ml) double/heavy cream
4 oz (100g) sugar or caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (or according to taste)

First of all beat and mix together the egg yolks and sugar until thick. Separately, pour the milk into a saucepan and scald it (bring slowly up to boiling point). Pour the hot milk into the egg yolks and sugar mix whilst continuously stirring. Then pour the mixture back into the pan and heat gently, stirring until the custard thickens - DO NOT BRING TO THE BOIL OR IT WILL PROBABLY CURDLE. When you can see a film form over the back of your spoon it's time to remove the saucepan from the heat. Leave to cool.

This is the custard base and one you can use in many other ice cream recipes where you want a rich, creamy ice cream.

When the custard base is cold, stir in the cream and then the vanilla extract, then transfer the whole mixture into your Ice cream Maker and freeze.

You can watch everything come together as it churns. It wont take more than 10-20min I always sample mine to "test" it.

Also here is a site I like to get more things you can do with your machine. http://www.ice-cream-recipes.com

Good luck, I might make some tonight. Sounds good
