Hi Mike, it can definitely be confusing! Another reason other cookbooks or websites may report a different weight per cup of flour is that they've established a different method of measuring flour by cups, which leads to a different weight per cup. For our flours and recipes, we recommend this method of measuring flour by cups (if you don't have a scale), which is how we derived our flour weights. My general rule of thumb when using our flourin a recipe is to start with our flour weights, since our measurements tend to be on the light side. You can always add a little more flour, but it's almost impossible to remove it once you've added it in.
