What is the difference between liquid and dry ounces?
There is a big difference when it comes to measuring liquid ounces versus dry ounces. For instance, 1 cup of liquid equals 8 fluid ounces. 1 cup of all-purpose flour equals 7.1 dry ounces (by unit of weight). Always use the proper measuring tools and formulas when converting ingredients!
Can I use the same measuring cup for dry and liquid ingredients?
The short answer is yes and no. If a recipe calls for a cup of dry ingredients or liquid substances, yes you can use the same measuring cup. However, for accuracy in cooking and baking, it is best practice to weigh ingredients using a kitchen scale whenever ounces are indicated in the ingredient amounts. Furthermore, you can purchase liquid measuring cups specifically for measuring wet ingredients.
