When you cook a dish, the recipe might come with several types of measurements, including the cup ratio. No matter if you are looking to find out how much does a cup of flour weight or any other ingredient like cacao, sugar or rice, here is how to determine the exact quantity.
You can use a dry measuring cup. This features a 1 cup, ½ cup, ⅓ cup and ¼ cup measure suitable for almost all baking ingredients. If you measure dry ingredients like flour or sugar, you will have to use a basic spoon. Also, keep in mind that you should level the quantity in the spoon for a more accurate result.
Also, you can use the measuring cup for liquids like water, oil or milk. The trick is to position the measuring cup on a level surface to make sure the liquid reaches the right level.
