Measuring Dry Ingredients

Measuring Dry Ingredients

29 Aug 2017 - Anneka Manning

When measuring dry ingredients with measuring cups (rather than scales) the most accurate way to do this is to spoon the ingredient into the cup and then use the back of a knife to level the surface with the top of the cup. No need to tap the cup on the bench or force the ingredient into the cup unless it specifies 'firmly packed' (which brown sugar sometimes does).
