Equivalencies



3t=1T
2 T = 1 oz.
4 T = ¼ cup
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!
4 qt = __
8 pt
 1 gal = __
16 c = 128
= __
__ 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.

Always use a dry measuring cup

Flour


Sugar


Pour/spoon into dry measuring
cup, then level
Rice /Misc.


sift, pour or spoon into dry

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


Shortening/Peanut Butter



Pack firmly into a dry
measuring cup, press until
level.
Pack firmly into a dry

Remove with a rubber
scraper/spatula
Cut/Shredded foods

Press or place into a dry
measuring cup
Using your Hands
Make sure your hands are clean!!!
For some ingredients it is
best to use your hands:
 Eggs


Packages:


Do not break on the side
of the mixing bowl, shells
may fall in.
Open and pour into
mixture
Chunks/Squares:

Unwrap and measure out
with hands
