To figure out how many ounces are in a cup, you'll need to measure the height and width of a cup to compute the volume of the cup. To find a standard cup's height, you can either use a ruler or a measuring cup. To measure the width of a cup, you'll need a non-metallic ruler. To figure out the number of ounces in a standard cup you'll need a measuring cup, the ruler and a bit of math.

Wondering how many ounces in a cup? Or converting tablespoons and teaspoons to cups and fluid ounces versus dry ounces? Use this handy measurement chart for cooking recipes. It is your quick guide to liquid measurements and dry measurement conversions. Not all measurements are created equal. Measuring 4 ounces of lime juice for a margarita recipe is much different than measuring 4 ounces of flour for chocolate chip cookies. Or perhaps there are those times we are wondering how many ounces is in a cup of coffee? This is a handy tool for questions like that – and moments when I'm making fresh pressed celery juice in a blender and I want to double or quadruple any liquids. Liquid and dry ingredients measure differently as dry ingredients typically measure by weight when recipes ask for them in ounces or grams. Liquid on the other hand measures by fluid ounces. There is a big difference between fluid ounces and dry ounces so always check your recipe.

Many baking recipes use coconut oil or butter, so how do we properly measure butter and oil? Butter is typically found in ½ cup sticks or 8 tablespoons, and if made in the United States, the packaging is labeled with ¼ cup, ½ cup, and tablespoon marks. Pack butter or coconut oil in a measuring cup with a spoon and level it off to measure properly. If using melted coconut oil, make sure to measure it with a liquid measuring cup. Granulated Measuring Cups are used for dry ingredients as they can be leveled off for an exact measurement. Make sure to sift flours as needed before using for the best measurement. Flour is already sifted before it is packaged, but it tends to settle during shipping and may become compact. I don't always add that step in my recipes since most flours are already sifted before they are packaged, but for the best results make sure to sift it first then measure. Either shake on the measuring cup or level off with the flat part of a butter knife for an accurate result, and make sure to never pack down flour. (Source: delightfulmomfood.com)
