How To Measure Molasses

There are a few types of equipment used to measure items for recipe applications. Dry cups are those intended for flour, sugar, brown sugar & nuts. Foods such as peanut butter should also be measured in them. A liquid measuring cup should be used when it comes to ingredients such as buttermilk, water, molasses, honey & corn syrup for the most accurate results. These are generally made of glass or plastic with a handle & a spout.

Since molasses is quite sticky, first coat the cup with cooking spray. Next, place it flat on the countertop. While looking at the increments at eye level, begin adding molasses to the cup. Once the amount has been captured, use as directed according to specific recipe applications & watch it easily pour. The molasses will not cling to the sides.
