  • Always measure liquids on a level surface,
  • Pour liquid into cup until it has reached the line
  • Never hold cup up or read measurements above cup!
  • Always check at eye level
measuring dry ingredients
Measuring Dry Ingredients
  • Used to measure LARGE quantities of DRY ingredients eg., flour, sugar, oatmeal.
  • Fill measuring cups to the top for accuracy

Measuring Dry Ingredients
  • Always use a dry measuring cup that is the exact size you need
  • Imperial- 1 cup, ½ cup, 1/3 cup, ¼ cup
  • Metric- 250 mL, 125 mL, 50 mL
measuring flour
Measuring Flour
  • Flour settles when stored
  • Make sure to stir up well before measuring
  • Stirring makes it lighter, giving you an accurate measurement
brown sugar
Brown Sugar
  • High in moisture
  • Always pack sugar into a dry measuring cup, until level
  • Brown sugar should hold its shape when turned upside down

Soft fats, such as spreadable margarine or softened butter, can be carefully pressed into a dry measure (avoid trapping air bubbles) and leveled off with a straight-edged utensil.

Firm Solid Fats

Firm fats, such as lard, shortening, cold butter and baking margarine, may be cut from the block, if the package provides measurements for doing so.

Water Displacement: Butter, Shortening or Margarine
  • Select a liquid measure measuring cup which could hold at least twice the amount of fat to be measured
  • Eg., fill 2 cup liquid measure with cold water to 1 cup line
  • Using a knife / or spoon add shortening until the water line equals 1 cup + amount of shortening needed.
measuring spoons
Measuring Spoons
  • Used to measure SMALL amounts of liquid and dry ingredients
  • Use same spoons for both liquids & dry ingredients
  • Sizes: 1 Tbsp (15 mL), 1 tsp (5 mL), ½ tsp (2 mL), ¼ tsp (1 mL)
  • Be sure to choose the exact size spoon
  • Liquids should be filled to top
  • Dry ingredients should be levelled off with a flat edge
