How to Measure Flour


Measuring Flour

Guaranteed baking success starts with measuring flour the RIGHT way. A properly measured cup of flour weighs 4 1/4 ounces.

Please follow the steps below when measuring flour by volume.

  1. Fluff up the flour.
  2. Sprinkle the flour into a dry-cup measure (the one that measures exactly 1 cup, 1/4 cup, etc. at the top).
  3. Scrape off the excess with a straight edge, such as a table knife.
