Line Measuring Cups With Plastic Wrap When Measuring Wet Ingredients

Measuring butter or shortening almost always results in a little bit of waste, since you can't dig every dollop out of your measuring cup. Make it easier to remove the ingredients with a piece of plastic wrap.

Before you measure out what you need, line the inside of your measuring cup with a piece of plastic wrap. Fill in as much as you need, then simply lift the plastic out and scrape/pour it off into the pot. Not only will this result in less waste, it will also leave you with a clean, dry measuring cup for the next thing you need to dole out.

    Or alternatively, just measure it out by weight rather than waste cling wrap like that.

    Personally I just eyeball it most of the time. I've found that most of what I bake doesn't end up being that dramatically different if I'm a little over or under.

    Not sure how well this works.. but it doesn't seeeeem like it would work well, given the high surface area of a scrunched piece of plastic vs that of a fixed container. *shrug*
