What Is The Difference Between Dry And Liquid Measuring Cups?

Did you know there are two types of measuring cups? There’s one for dry ingredients such as sugar and flour and one for liquid for oil, water or milk.

Dry measuring cups are meant to be leveled off with say a butter knife. While liquid measuring cups have a little spout that is for pouring the liquid out, so you can’t overfill it. You will find the measurements on the side of the cup with lines, versus measuring all way to the top of the measuring cup.

How To Measure Dry Ingredients Properly

Depending on the dry ingredient will depend on how you measure. A lot of times for items like brown sugar, you will pack the sugar tightly right into the measuring cup. Regular sugar, rice, oats, you pour it in until your measuring cup is full or scoop out of the container.

For flour, you will take a smaller spoon and scoop the flour into the correct measuring cup. Be sure to never pack it tightly into the cup.

If you do, you will get too much flour and it can leave your mixture over-dry and your recipe may not come out correctly.

Always read your recipe fully before starting in case there are special instructions on how to measure.

How To Measure Wet Ingredients

To measure your liquid ingredients, take your measuring cup and set it on a flat surface. Slowly pour your liquid in while bending down at eye level to see where your liquid is measuring. Eye-level is important to ensure you are measuring at the right level.
