The Answer:

A **liquid cup**and a

**solid cup**are exactly the

**same**size. This can be easily verified by measuring a

**cup**of water

**in a liquid**measuring

**cup**and pouring it into a

**one**-

**cup dry**measuring

**cup**: they take up the

**same**amount of space.

Similarly, how many dry cups is a liquid cup?

1.00 cups

**honey**is

**measured**in weight and not in fluid ounces due to the variable moisture content.

**Measuring honey**by weight is the best way to guarantee product consistency.

Also question is, can you use a liquid measuring cup for flour?

**Measuring** dry ingredients **You can** scoop your **flour** into your **liquid measuring cup** until it reaches the 1/2 **cup** mark. But **you can**'t level it off. In the dry **measuring cup**, 1/2 **cup** of all purpose **flour** weighs 62 grams. But when **I** used the **liquid measuring cup**, **I** got 57 grams.
