Butter Question - I should know this but.

If a recipe calls for say 125g melted butter does that mean take that amount of butter and melt it OR melt butter and measure out 125g! I should know but don't bake a whole lot, my cakes usually have oil and not butter but I have found a recipe like and don't want to have it go wrong. and can I take a recipe that asks for butter and substitute oil! If so, what quantity!

I take it to mean 125gm butter in its solidified form, then melt it .

not sure about substituting oil for butter though .

I have been finding that a lot of my old tried and true biscuit recipes are not as buttery and crisp as they used to be in years gone by.reckon it is because butter is no longer pure as it used to be as they bulk it up with water so I add a slightly larger quantity of butter to the recipe.anyone else found this !

125grms is a weight measure so 125 grms of solid butter still weighs 125 grms when its melted.

You take 125gof butter and melt it.
How would you measure grams of a liquid!
