Did you know that there is a correct way to measure flour? Baking is a science and requires precise amounts of each ingredient. Deviating from the requested amount may cause undesired results.
To correctly measure flour, follow these three easy steps:
- Using a spoon, scoop flour out of its container.
- Pour the flour from the spoon into the desired measuring cup, filling it completely. Don’t pack the flour in!
- Using the back, flat edge of a knife or other flat tool, scrape off the excess flour from the top of the measuring cup (shown below).
Voila! You have exactly the amount of flour you need.
