Yogurt Containers as Measuring Cups
And you thought they were good only for storing leftovers. An 8-ounce container, filled to a pinkie's thickness from the rim, holds about 1 cup of flour or liquid. A quart container, filled to the same distance from the rim, holds 4 cups. Use this Band-Aid solution for small-scale cooking―pancakes, rice, soups―rather than for serious baking projects, which demand exact measurements.
