Full Answer

Fluid ounces are an imperial measurement. The metric equivalent of a fluid ounce is a milliliter. There are 235 ml in a cup. In cooking and baking, it is important when measuring ingredients to use a uniform method for quantities. It is entirely acceptable to use cups, fluid ounces or ounces, as most recipes call for relative amounts of ingredients, for example, half as much fat as flour.
