When a recipe calls for shortening, that can mean greasy measuring cups that are hard to clean out. At least that’s what it used to for me.
Until I discovered this quick tip for using shortening. This is a real time saver because you don’t have to cram the shortening into a measuring cup, plus it saves you the hassle of washing the greasy cups out.
This was like the softening butter tip I shared; so easy, I wondered why I didn’t think of it long ago!
Use a kitchen scale.
Simply put the shortening can lid onto the scale, zero out the number, and add the shortening with a spoon until you have what you need.
1 cup of shortening = 6 ounces or 205 grams.
Now you only have to clean the spoon. How easy is that?!
