How to measure

The Equipment:

Graduated Measuring Cups

Measuring cups that resemble small pots. They are usually made of plastic or metal and come in sets of four or five (1 cup, 3/4 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup). They are excellent for measuring dry ingredients because they can easily be leveled off.

Liquid Measuring Cups

Measuring cups that look like little pitchers with a lip/spout to aid in pouring. They are widely available in 1, 2, 4, and 8-cup measures. They come in glass or plastic, with the amounts indicated in cups, ounces, and milliliters. Pyrex is a good brand. The larger measures can double as mixing bowls.

Measuring Spoons

Come in sets of four or five (1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, 1/4 teaspoon and sometimes 1/8 teaspoon).

Ingredients

Butter

Each 1/4 pound stick of margarine or butter measures 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons. In the United States, the wrapping usually has tablespoons and teaspoons clearly marked. One stick usually equals 1/2 cup. If it has not been packed that way, pack margarine or butter into measuring spoon or measuring cup and level off to measure.

Sugar

Measuring Sugar

Most sugar can be measured in a graduated measuring cup. Simply spoon it in and level off with the straight edge of a knife. Most recipes usually call for certain amounts of packed brown sugar. To measure packed brown sugar, pack sugar down lightly with back of spoon, then level off.

Measuring Flour

In most recipes, flour is supposed to be measured straight from the canister or package (the flour needs to be airy, if it seems compact, stir it in the container before measuring it). NEVER pack flour down into the measuring cup or tap it excessively. Lightly spoon flour into graduated measuring cup, and level off with straight edge of knife.

It is important to measure flour correctly in low-fat bread making because when we reduce the fat (which tenderizes it), we don't want to dramatically increase the flour (which toughens it).

Stick your foot into a 1 cubic foot box, then drink a quart of vodka...then it won't matter.

If your feet are shaped like cubes, then the only way to convert both of them into dry quarts is to determine the number of wet quarts it would require to fill up the Grand Canyon while facing North, on a hot day with an average temperature of 99°, then add that amount to the number of dry cubes it takes to fill up your shoebox and divide by two

1 cup of flour is 130g. Your dry measurement chart claims ½ cup is 113.4g??

Your dry measure table incorrectly refers to "ounces" in 3 of the boxes as "liquid ounces" instead of simply "ounces" or "dry ounces." A dry ounce is 28.4g, while a liquid ounce is 29.6g (or rounded to 30mL).
