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!
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
