Do you run the other way at the slightest mention of measuring your ingredients in grams for your baking? I understand. I was once terrified by the thought of weighing my flour, too. Besides, how much difference could it really make?
Turns out, a LOT.
It all started when I discovered the Great British Bake Off on PBS. I quickly became obsessed with this show and the mighty challenges faced by contestants each week. They were making and baking things I had never heard of using foreign sounding ingredients. And there wasn’t a cup in sight.
They weighed everything. Even baking powder was measured on a scale. I was intrigued and terrified all the same time. What was this witch craft, and how could I do it, too?
Turns out, it’s actually not difficult to do! It’s surprisingly easy once you make the shift. The basics are that instead of spooning into a measuring cup, you spoon into a vessel on the scale. You simply add the ingredient being measured until you achieve the desired weight.
Yes. It’s that simple
No need to fear the food scale. In this video, I will show you exactly what to do. Watch and let me know if you’re ready to make the switch.
Hi there, I’m Patty
Sewist, Baker, Maker
I love figuring out new ways to use pom poms, where I can stash more fabric, and I’m always wondering what to bake next…chocolate or lemon? When not dreaming up new things to make (or bake), I love riding my beach cruiser on the Boardwalk, escaping to mid week movie matinees, and planting new things in my tiny but mighty container garden.
