How To Measure Cold Coconut Oil

When baking with coconut oil, it’s often required to measure it out while it’s in its solid, rather than liquid and melted, form.  It can be a bit of a pain pressing this solid oil into traditional small measuring cups.  How can you more easily measure cold coconut oil?  This simple hack will be a recurring go-to method in your kitchen from now on!

How To Measure Cold Coconut Oil

  • Fill a glass measuring cup up to the 1 Cup waterline with cool water.
  • Scoop in spoonfuls of coconut oil until the waterline reads 1 Cup + The Amount Of Coconut Oil Your Recipe Calls For.  (If the recipe calls for 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, the waterline will read 1 + 1/4 Cup.)
  • Without pulling out any water with it, scoop the coconut oil back out with a spoon, and move it into your baking or cooking vessel.  If it makes it easier, you can use a slotted spoon to drain the water more efficiently.
  • Voilà! Accuracy every time with minimal mess!
