Can someone please tell me how much 1 cup of shortening should weigh? I know I've read a thread that mentioned this, but I can't find it for the life of me. I just hate to measure it out in a cup.. it's so messy. Thanks!
7 ounces shortening in one cup
I measured my shortening in a cup and then I weighed it, it came out to 4 ounces for me. That is the measurement I use.
7 ounces is correct.
Is the weight for hi-ratio shortening different than the weight on Crisco?
I weighed my cup and got 8 oz. so thats what I use......
I usually measure it in grams for some reason and have been using 205 g for my measurement...
just checked and apparently that equals 7.2 oz.
Thanks for the replies! The label said that one tablespoon was 11 grams, so I just used that measurement. So for a cup it was 176 grams. Thanks again!
