The RIGHT way!
Method 1: Use a spoon or fork to fluff up your flour before measuring from your container or bag.
Do NOT place your cup directly into your flour container as you will yield too much flour.
Spoon the flour into your measuring cup until you have a tall mound.
Use a flat sided object, like a knife, to scrape the excess flour back into the container.
Method 2: Place a large bowl on top of a digital scale and zero out your scale. Spoon flour from a bag or container into the bowl until you reach the desired amount.
