The Right Way to Measure Flour

I found this information on the web and wanted to share with my readers. I was wondering why when I make bread, it comes out differently sometimes.

How To Measure Flour

1. Use a spoon to fluff up the flour within the container.

2. Use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup.

3. Use a knife or other straight edged utensil to level the flour across the measuring cup. King Arthur Flour has a plastic straight edge that I keep in my flour bin at all times for just this purpose.

Here is a handy list of some of the commonly used weight measurements in my kitchen. All measurements are in weight ounces, not fluid ounces.


all-purpose flour 1 cup weighs 4.25 ounces

cake flour 1 cup weighs 4 ounces

bread flour 1 cup weighs 4.25 ounces


  1. Thank you so much for the tip. It is really gonna help my baking.
