6 of the best measuring cups and spoons
Are you planning to do some baking this weekend? For those of us in the UK that are still mainly working in ounces, the American system of measuring cups may sound a little odd . Which cup are we supposed to use as a standard? Are we talking tea cups, coffee cups, latte cups, espresso mugs? well I can certainly imagine that espresso cups would make the tiniest batch of brownies ever.
Cup measuring is simple, easy and far less fuss that relying on that dodgy pair of electronic scales all the time. You can season accurately and they’re even perfect for portioning out cookie dough or cupcake batter to make sure each treat is perfectly even.
