Measuring Dry Ingredients
  • Use a spatula with a straight edge to level off dry ingredients in the dry measuring cups.
measuring flour
Measuring Flour
  • Flour tends to “pack” in the canister so it is good to stir or whisk it before measuring.
  • Sifting is also required before measuring flour for some recipes.
moist ingredients
Moist Ingredients
  • Some ingredients are not liquids nor are they dry. They are “moist”.
  • Moist ingredients are things such as butter, peanut butter, mayonnaise, yogurt and shortening.
  • Moist ingredients should be “packed” into the measuring cup and leveled with a straight edge spatula to be accurate.
solid ingredients
Solid Ingredients
  • Solid ingredients can be moist or dry. They are in large pieces.
  • Examples of solid ingredients are: raisins, chocolate chips, chopped onions, chopped nuts, blueberries and sliced celery
  • When measuring solid ingredients, “shake” the measuring cup from side to side to level the ingredients.

Accurate measuring is your key to success when following recipes!
