What is a cup?
A cup is a volume unit. Its symbol is “c.” There may be various cups, but the division or conversions are done from a standard size cup.
How many ounces are in a cup?
You might be stuck in a situation when you want to cook something, but as per the recipe, you don’t know how many ounces are in a cup? It is a really annoying situation as just because of one wrong step, you might not want to spoil the entire dish.
Types of ingredients
There can be dry and wet ingredients that you might have to convert into ounces. Dry ounces should be weighed on a scale as it is a unit of weight, such as baking soda, salt, baking powder, flour, etc. If it is a wet ingredient, you should use a weight measuring cup as it becomes volume. Some of the wet ingredients can be milk, juice, honey, etc.
Conversion of a dry ounce
One dry ounce equals 1/8th of a cup, which equals two tbsp or 28.3 grams. If you want to calculate it for some other reason, you just need to take a dry measuring cup and then see the number of dry ounces and multiply it by 0.125.
Conversion of a wet ounce
According to the US customary volume measurements system, there are 8 fluid ounces in one cup, compared to 16 tbsp. But it is not the same everywhere as the US’s cup size is not the same as the UK. A US cup is 240ml, and in the UK, it is 250ml. Hence,
1 US cup (236.59mL) = 8 US fluid ounces
1 US cup (236.59mL) = 8.327 UK fluid ounces
1 UK cup (284.13mL) = 10 UK fluid ounces
1 UK cup (284.13mL) = 9.607 US fluid ounces
How to measure liquid ingredients in one cup?
