Tips for Measuring

When cooking, especially baking it is important to be precise with your measurements. 

I have a few tips that will help you get the most accurate measurements.

– Dip and sweep method: Use this method when measuring dry ingredients such as flour and sugar. Dip your measuring cup or spoon into the ingredient and then sweep the excess off with a flat edge. This method is also know as level measurement.

– Use liquid measuring cups for wet ingredients: Liquid measuring cups usually have a spout which makes it easy to pour without making a mess.

– Use a food scale: If you want to be extra precise with your measurements a food scale is always going to give you the most accurate results.

– Sift your ingredients Sifting your dry ingredients will help to lighten them and make sure there are no clumps. This is especially important when measuring flour.
