ALMOND FLOUR EQUIVALENCE
Almond Flour Equivalence
Question: How many cups are there in a half pound of almond flour?
Over here in Europe they use weights instead of volume measures,
so instead of measuring cups, everybody has a little scale in their
kitchen. I have the scale AND the cups....so I've gone and done
a little experiment for you.
The short answer:
1/2 lb almond flours is a little more than 1 3/4 cups. You probably
will not go wrong with 2 scant cups.
The long answer for the mathematically inclined:
1 cup weighed 127 grams (measure cup itself not included in
1/2 lb = 225 grams (because there are 2.2lbs to the kilo,
pounds by .45 to get kilos. .5 x .45 =.225)
225 divided by 127 = 1.77,
which is very close to 1.75, which is the same as 1 & 3/4
Voila, happy cake-baking!

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
