I bake for a "tough crowd"😊. They love love loved this recipe.....made cupcakes. First time making it but for sure my go to from this day forward! YUM!!!! Thank you😄
I have not made this recipe yet, but from reading all of the reviews and the instructions, I'm wondering if the flower should be sifted before measuring it. That could be why so many people think it is too dry or has too much flour. I have always sifted my flour before measuring it when making a cake. Is this the proper way to go about measuring flour?
Hi Julie - measuring flour is very important when baking, and can definitely affect how your baked goods turn out. We recommend stirring the flour in the container, spooning into a measuring cup, and leveling it off with a butter knife. This way you know you've measured correctly and will have success with your recipe. Happy baking!
