Standard Measurements ~ Cup to Gram Measurements
  • Flour

The most commonly mismeasured item is flour. Use the “spoon & level” method whether you’re using bread flour, cake flour, all-purpose flour, or any other flour on the market.

If you use your measuring cup to scoop the flour out of the container/bag, you can wind up with 50% more than you need.

Rather, scoop the flour into the measuring cup with a spoon. Do not pack the flour down and do not tap the measuring cup as both cause the flour to settle in the cup.

After spooning the flour into the measuring cup, level the top of the measuring cup with the back of a knife.
