- Weighing is the most accurate method of measuring four. If the recipe specifies weight, weigh the flour.
- Always use a dry measuring cup for measuring flour. Never use a liquid measuring cup.
- If a recipe does not tell you how to measure or give a weight, use the 4 1/2 ounces/128 grams spoon and sweep method.
