When I was informed by Cook.Love.Bake about there is slightly a difference on cup measurement issues in my recent baking post. I was lost. She used 240ml and I used 200ml for 1 Cup. OMG, How come?
I have not heard that actually there is different volume in Cup measurement, and I thought it should be the same, since it bought from the shop. I quickly checked on my cup measurement. Yes, it is 200ml.
So, how ??? Is this the wrong measurement cup?
Thanks to her :) and from Wikipedia, I learn that there are actually different kinds of cup measurement.
- Metric Cup = 250 ml
- US Cup = 240 ml
- Imperial Cup = 284 ml
- Japanese Cup = 200 ml
I think it should be no issue, if all the ingredients of a recipe is measured with the same cup, because it will give the same proportion volumes to one another.
Have you checked your cup measurement falls into which category? :)
