Does anyone know if raw weight of cookies, breads, cakes- is the same after those items have been baked?

Okay, this is funny. I made my version of Kenji's chocolate cookies today. The dough is in balls having its 24 hour rest. I've been arguing with myself about having one right now. I'll take one for the team and weigh it raw and again in 13 minutes after baking it. My guess is that the weight won't change.
One raw cookie = 42 grams.
Cookie baked = 40 grams.
At least for breads, the baked weight is slightly less, as the water in the dough turns to steam and then dissipates. Imagine it would be the same for all baked goods. Somewhere I've seen the ratios but it's not coming to mind at the moment...

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
