An ounce of dry weight is equal to 2 tablespoons. The same amount of dry matter is in 1/8 cup and 28.3 grammes. When cooking, it’s helpful to know these simple conversions because the measurements in a recipe can be different depending on where the book or resource was written.
Because the right measurements are so important to the success of many types of dishes, it is important to know how to measure ingredients correctly. With a measuring spoon, you can scoop up dry ingredients until the spoon is full. For accuracy, you should level off the ingredients with the back, flat side of a knife until they are even with the edges of the measuring spoon.
