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!
