Equivalencies
• 3 t = 1 T
• 2 T = 1 oz.
• 4 T = ¼ cup
• 5 1/3 T = 1/3 cup
• 5 T + 1 t = 1/3 c
• 10 2/3 T = 2/3 cup
• 10 T + 2 t = 2/3 c

How many T = 1 cup?

Equivalencies
• 1 gal. = 4 qt.
• 1 qt. = 2 pt.
• 1 pt. = 2 c.
• 1 c. = 8 oz.
Equivalencies – fluid ounces

For Liquids:

• 1 c = 8 oz.
• 1 pt = 2 c = 16 oz.
• 1 qt = 2 pt = 4 c = 32 oz.
• ½ gal = 2 qt = 4 pt = 8 c =64 oz.

Figure it out!

• 1 gal = __ qt = __ pt

= __ c = __ oz

Equivalencies - pounds
• 1 lb = 16 oz.
• 1 lb butter=2 cups = 4 sticks

How much is in one stick?

Measuring ingredients

There are two kinds of measuring:

• Dry measuring
• Liquid measuring

They each have their own types of equipment and techniques to use.

Note: moist ingredients use same equipment, different techniques.

Dry MeasuringAlways use a dry measuring cup
• Flour
• sift, pour or spoon into dry measuring cup, then level
• Sugar
• Pour/spoon into dry measuring cup, then level
• Rice /Misc.
• Scoop out or pour into dry measuring cup
• Small amounts
• Dip measuring spoons into ingredient or pour onto spoon not over mixing bowl
Liquid Measuring

Always use liquid measuring cups.

• Milk/Water/Liquid
• Place measuring cup on counter, pour liquid in, check at eye level.
• Vanilla/Small amounts
• Pour into a measuring spoon
• Hold over small bowl to catch excess.

(Not over mixing bowl)

Moist Ingredients
• Brown Sugar
• Pack firmly into a dry measuring cup, press until level.
• Shortening/Peanut Butter

Using your HandsMake sure your hands are clean!!!

For some ingredients it is best to use your hands:

• Eggs
• Do not break on the side of the mixing bowl, shells may fall in.
• Packages:
• Open and pour into mixture
• Chunks/Squares:
