Conversion chart – Grams, Liters, Gallons, Cups, Ounces

Conversion chart - Grams, Liters, Gallons, Cups, Ounces

Dry and liquid measurements hold the same volume then why measure differently? Simple.. Dry measuring cups are meant to be filled to the top so that you can shake off the excess and Liquid measuring cups have a spout which is used for pouring hot and liquid stuff.

Measuring 1 cup of flour in a dry measuring spoon will be more convenient, simply fill it to the top and easily level off using a knife. On the other hand using a liquid measuring cup as a replacement would mess up the whole recipe. Firstly, you will waste a lot of time filling and refilling the liquid cup and excess can’t be leveled as their brim line is way below. Secondly, you will end up getting the wrong measurements as shaking the cup will cause the flour to settle down, which will result in adding more flour and this will ruin the whole recipe.

Also a measuring cup measures volume of a liquid and grams is used to measure mass and weight of non liquid ingredients.

    Very informative article. Thank you so much. Love your detailed description of the recipes with pictures and explaining everything. Can you let me know how to make sour cream and buttermilk at home for your eggless red velvet cupcakes.

    • RK says:

      Thanks Nilufar. FOR BUTTERMILK Pour 1 cup of milk into a bowl. Add vinegar to it. Stir to combine. Let sit for 5 minutes until the milk begins to curdle and becomes acidic. Butter milk is ready

      To make sour cream at home Take 1 cup of heavy cream, add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and start whisking it for 2-3 minutes. It will start to get thick and there you have it your very own homemade sour cream.
