Measuring Tools
What are the two ways of measuring ingredients
for accuracy? Measuring cups/spoons and
weighing.
The two types of measuring cups are liquid and
dry. The difference is that liquid has a pouring
spout.
Liquids are measured on a flat surface at eye
level.
Measuring Tools
The sizes of dry measuring cups are ¼ c,
1/3 c, ½ c, and 1 c.
Sizes of measuring spoons are ¼ t, ½ t, 1 t,
and 1 T.
Measuring Techniques:
 Granulated Sugar: scoop into a dry measuring
cup, level.
 Brown Sugar: pack the sugar into a dry
measuring cup, level.
 Shortening: pack down in dry measuring cup
or use water displacement.
 Egg: crack into separate bowl
