Measuring liquid ingredients accurately isn't hard to do, but it's important to do it right — especially when you're baking.

Step 1: Get the Right Tools
First, you need the right tools: liquid measuring cups. Measuring spoons work with both wet and dry ingredients.

Step 2: How to Measure
Pour the liquids into the measuring cup. When checking your measurement, be sure your eyes are even with the level of the liquid. If you look from above, you might misread the amount.

Be sure to fill the spoon and keep it level when you're measuring smaller amounts.

Step 4: Measuring Honey
Here's a trick for measuring sticky liquids like honey: Spray your spoon with an oil spray to keep the liquid from sticking.

Step 5: Measure
Then measure. Your ingredient will slide out easily.

Step 6: Master Measuring
Accurate measurements get better results. It's that simple! Watch our how-to video for more.
