A: ### Quick Answer

**The number of cups that are equivalent to 60 grams varies based on what is being measured.** For example, 1/2 a cup of flour measures 60 grams, but when measuring brown sugar, 1/2 a cup is the equivalent of 100 grams.

Likewise, when measuring butter or margarine, around 1/3 of a cup equals 75 grams. When measuring slivered almonds or flaked coconut, 60 grams is equivalent to 3/4 of a cup, while 1/4 of a cup of granulated sugar is 55 grams.

A useful tool in picturing the light weight of a gram is a paperclip, which weighs around a gram. The abbreviation for gram/grams is "g," and it is usually preferred instead of writing out the words gram or grams.
