Quick Tip

Cookbook, flour, and spoon
The most accurate way to measure flour (especially important when baking) is to use a large spoon to scoop the flour into a dry measuring cup, then run the flat edge of a knife across the top of the cup to sweep off any excess. Resist the urge to scoop flour with the measuring cup directly from the bag: The flour will become compacted and you’ll get more than is intended for the recipe.
