How To Measure

Are you a little iffy on how to measure certain ingredients? Don't worry, a lot of us are. Plus, it's important to measure ingredients accurately, especially if you're baking or counting calories. That's why we're showing you how to measure dry, liquid, and even sticky ingredients. We'll also show you how to make measuring even easier with a few cool tools! 

Check out our video and tips on how to measure. It's so easy, you'll be a master baker in no time!

  1. How to Measure Dry Ingredients: Use a plastic or stainless steel measuring cup with a flat handle. Dip the cup into whatever dry ingredient you are measuring. Fill a heaping cup, then take a knife and push off the excess so that the ingredient is level with the flat handle. You now you have a perfect measure! 
  2. How to Measure Liquid Ingredients: Use a glass measuring cup with a spout. Pour ingredient into the cup on a flat surface. Do not lift up the cup to read, instead bend down and read at eye level for a perfect measure! You can also buy an Angled Measuring Cup, which allows you to make a perfect measure without bending down. 
  3. How to Measure Sticky Ingredients: Spray a liquid measuring cup with non-stick cooking spray and follow the instruction for measuring liquids. The non-stick cooking spray will allow sticky ingredients to pour our easily. If you measure sticking ingredients a lot, you may want to invest in a Push-Up Measuring Cup. With this, you just measure the amount needed, push-up, and use a knife to push off ingredient. 

Use your new measuring skills to make a yummy recipe from scratch!

This is very helpful, but I think if you are a perfectionist, you've got to weigh your ingredients. Not that I'm going to. Not a perfectionist. "Good enough" is good enough for me! lol I do know that when I'm making chicken and dumplings and I measure the Bisquick, the actual amount must vary because sometimes the dumplings are drier than other times and sometimes they are wet and stickier.

The bad part for me is here in Mexico, they dont stock all those fancy-pants baking utensils, so I have to improvise. They only bake things in the home to sell, not for personal enjoyment. My neighbors are shocked when I tell them of the things I make for my hubby to enjoy.
