    How To Measure Flour..

    While cooking some of the recipes in a cookbook recently I asked myself: Whets THE method or methods to measure flour. Specifically this happened while making my recipe for [insert here just about any recipe]. So here are my tips on how to measure flour for a recipe.

    When measuring flour for a recipe, do not scoop it up with the measuring cup. Doing so will pack the flour into the cup, resulting in a greater volume of flour than the cup actually holds.

    First, lightly stir the flour in your canister. Then, gently scoop up the flour with a large spoon or whatever, sprinkle it into your measuring cup and level it with a knife. That will give you an accurate measure resulting in flaky pastry, light cakes and tender breads.

    This applies to all types of flour but, of course, does not apply to crystal substances like sugar and salt.

    EXTER CREDIT:
    Brown sugar is almost always measured "packed."
    However, cocoa powder should be tamped down a bit in the measuring cup since it sometimes has a tendency to clump leaving air spaces.

    Donít get me started on: Powered, Confectionery sugars or Wonders flower


    As always: yourín mileage may verrry
