Ok, when I have to measure flour for a recipe do I measure then sift or sift then measure?
Probably a stupid question but...I want to make sure I get it right?
It can be confusing and it all depends on how the directions are written.
"1 cup sifted flour" means to sift the flour then measure out one cup; add that one cup to the mixture.
"1 cup flour, sifted" means to measure one cup of flour, then sift it and put the whole thing in the mixture.
Indydebi, you are my new hero. First the BC recipe and now this-
When I took a nutrition and food safety class in college I was taught that the correct way to do it is to sift then measure.
