How to Measure Ingredients

Dear Baker:
What is the proper way to measure ingredients? --iVillager anniej10


Dear anniej10:
Liquid ingredients are measured in a glass or plastic measuring cup. Place it at eye level to accurately check the measure. Dry ingredients are best measured in dry, nesting measuring cups. To measure flour, lightly fluff it in its container, and then spoon it into the measuring cup, then level the top with a straight edged implement.
