Baking 101: Measuring

Welcome to the second week of the Baking 101 series. I plan to share with you the tools, tips and tricks that I use, along with recipes, measuring, ingredients and all of the other great things about baking.

Just like last week, I need to tell you…I’m NOT a professional…I have never been to school, nor even taken any classes on baking. I’m just a Mom and Wife that loves to bake and share my ideas!

Last week we talked about what kind of tools you need to bake with. Thanks for all the great comments. Sounds like many of you have a KitchenAid stand mixer {I REALLY need to get one} and you also love the Pampered Chef products.

Today we are talking about Measuring…what to use and how to measure, including my handy Pampered Chef Measure All.

Barbara Bakes also has a great video on measuring flour from King Arthur Flour.

Do you have a favorite measuring cup?

Each week I will be sharing some of my favorites. These are just a couple of my favorite measuring cups. They are affiliate links. I would love for you to look at them, but most importantly, I just want to share with you my favorites.

Feel free to leave a comment with your baking questions. I have a long list of things to share with you, and will try to answer your questions.

    I love my measure all and the little measuring cup from PC that measures 1-4 T.

    But honestly, give me a nice glass anchor hocking 2 cup and I am a happy woman. That and I LOVE their 4 cup to mix up icings/sauces to drizzle.

  2. Fun video. So many new cooks don’t know how to measure. I think I need to buy a measure all. Thanks for the link love.

    I love my glass 4 c. liquid measuring cup, I also have a 1 cup I use all the time. The small one fits inside the big one. I’d like to have one that is a little more squat so I can mix things in it and then pour, maybe with a plastic lid, too.

  5. I love Pampered Chef!!! That Measure All is the best for mayo, peanut butter and shoffshoot!

    I also have a measure-all that I’ve been using for around 15 years! Don’t judge me……but I also (way back) bought the automatic sifter and have enjoyed. But mostly my KitchenAid, how did I ever live without it!
