You suggested I weigh my ingredients but how do you convert a recipe which uses volume measurements like
1 cup of butter and 2 cups of flour to a weight.  I know 1 cup of butter would weigh more than 2 cups of flour but I don’t know the calculation or tables to use to do this.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Rose’s Bread and Cake and Pastry Bibles have an appendix that lists the weights for everything. Baking by weight is so much easier and more accurate than the volume method. Once you do it, you will never go back. I’ve used her weights in many volume recipes with great success.
