Hi Jason, You're correct, there is no standard weight for a cup of flour in baking. It will depend on the baker, the method used, etc. The weight of flour from the nutritional panel is set at 30 grams per the FDA guidelines. That being said, the differences in weight listed above really only vary by about a teaspoon or two per cup when you get down to the nitty gritty, it's the fact that it adds up over multiple cups that makes for difficulty. So, we'd still say weigh your ingredients for accuracy, using the weight given by the recipe writer whenever possible. Baking; It's a science, it's an art, and sometimes, it's just a leap of faith and a little magic. ~ MJ
