Baking Measurements


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I like to cook & bake but hate measuring things like flour & olive oil - I always make a mess. So today I used my food scale to see just how much a cup of flour weighs, a Tbl of oil, etc. & wrote all the weights & measures a 3x5 card, which is now taped to the inside of the cupboard door. Now I can just put the mixing bowl or pot/pan on the scale & add the ingredients without having to spill flour everywhere trying to get it in the measuring cup.

    great idea, just don't forget the added (include) emoticon weight of your bowl/pan when weighing your items.

    Great idea. Using a scale is a time saver also. Thanks
