1 cup of all purpose flour will equal about 5 oz...whenever I have a weight/measurement question like this...I just "google" my question and then pick a "trusted source" as i scroll through the answers online. Cooks' Illustrated is a good source. Or why not just weigh what the recipe says in cups and see for yourself and keep a list for your own files for the future.

I have also seen 1 cup = 5 ounces unsifted flour, and 1 cup = 4 ounces sifted flour
