Have you ever spent hours baking a cake just to find out that it tastes terrible? You may have second-guessed yourself trying to remember if you left out sugar or even eggs. You may realize that you included everything and cannot figure out what the problem is.
Following a recipe to make a scrumptious baked good should be simple, but if you do not measure things properly, you could end up with something that you would not even feed to your dog. You should become familiar with the various tools that you can use to measure things by volume.
Graduated measuring cups should always be used to measure wet ingredients. When filling a graduated measuring cup, you always need to examine it from eye level to ensure that you are not over or under measuring.
Before starting to bake your next cake, pie, or cookies you should understand the difference between measuring wet and dry ingredients, how to convert between volume and weight, and why weighings your ingredients may be the best option.
