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.

Fluff up the flour.

Sprinkle the flour into a dry-cup measure (the one that measures exactly 1 cup, 1/4 cup, etc. at the top).

Scrape off the excess with a straight edge, such as a table knife.
