Get the Measurements Right

Measure dry ingredients like flour and sugar with dry measuring cups. Fill the cup and scrape a knife over the top to remove extra, leveling the contents with the top of the measuring cup.
When measuring wet ingredients like oil or milk, always place the measuring cup on the bench to ensure a level surface.

When measuring sticky ingredients like honey or golden syrup always wet the measuring cup first and place on the bench for a level surface. Wetting the measuring cup ensures all the contents pour out easily.

  1. Some recipes ask for 1/2 cup of margarine or butter. An easy way to measure is to half fill a measuring cup with cold water. Add the butt or marg. When the water comes to the top – you have 1/2 cup of butter or whatever.
