Measuring liquid ingredients vs dry ingredients
When cooking and especially baking, you want to ensure the ingredient measurements are correct so that your dish comes out delicious.
There are different types of measuring cups used when measuring dry ingredients and wet ingredients.
Liquid measuring cups have a spout for easy pouring and extra room at the top so the liquid doesn’t spill out. These are used for things like water, milk, oil, and more.
Dry measuring cups and spoons have a flat top to achieve the exact amount. They are used for ingredients like flour, sugar, and spices.
