Depending on what is being measured, there are different numbers of cups that equal 60 grammes. For example, a half cup of flour is equal to 60 grammes, but a half cup of brown sugar is equal to 100 grammes.
In the same way, about 1/3 of a cup of butter or margarine is equal to 75 grammes. 60 grammes is equal to 3/4 of a cup of sliced almonds or flaked coconut, while 55 grammes is equal to 1/4 of a cup of granulated sugar.
A paperclip, which weighs about a gramme, can help you picture how light a gramme is. “g” is the abbreviation for “gramme” or “grammes,” and it is often used instead of writing out “gramme” or “grammes.”
