How To Measure Flour With Measuring Cups

The scoop and level technique is the best way to measure flour with measuring cups. 

  • Fluff the flour up by stirring it with a spoon.
  • With your spoon, scoop the flour into your measuring cup.
  • Then, use the straight edge of a butter knife to level off the top.

This should give you the most accurate flour measurement without using a kitchen scale.

Benefits of Using A Kitchen Scale

As a home baker myself, I know how exhausting it is to have to clean a dirty kitchen! So, if I can find a way to use less measuring cups and bowls, you know I’m going to do just that by using a kitchen scale.

Using a kitchen scale has lots of benefits:

  • Less clean up! No need to wash multiple measuring cups.
  • Most accurate way of measuring.
  • More consistent results
  • Measure all the ingredients in one bowl. Again, less cleanup.

I am lazy. I prefer to work smarter and not harder. Skip the measuring cups and use a kitchen scale instead.
