🧾 Why measure in grams
Precision is vital when baking, and even the slightest measurement deviation can impact the final outcome.
The customary system used in the US for measuring volume may not be entirely accurate due to ingredient packing.
To ensure utmost accuracy, the metric system is preferred, and a digital kitchen scale is recommended.
Measuring ingredients in grams is more precise than in ounces, making it a preferred method for bakers.
Regardless of location, many bakers choose to measure ingredients in grams, providing consistency in results.
⚖️ How to measure dry weight
Measuring dry ingredients accurately is crucial to ensuring that your recipe turns out perfectly.
Using a kitchen scale is the best way to achieve this. Simply place your container on the scale and click the “tare button” to zero out the display.
This step will deduct the container’s weight to give an exact measurement. Next, add your dry ingredients to determine their weight.
If you don’t have a kitchen scale, measuring cups and tablespoons/teaspoons are the next best option.
Just make sure to fill them to the top and level off with a flat tool or the back of a knife.
This guarantees precise measurements for your recipes, resulting in delicious and consistent results every time, especially when it comes to flours and powders.
