Spreenkle #1

It was pointed out in a recent post on kitchen scales that a cup of flour should weigh 5 ounces…that takes all the guess work out of measuring your flour and a good part of the mess out of baking. But how about sugar? Brown sugar, light or dark, should weigh 7 ounces. Same as white sugar! Kind of cool if you’ve ever wondered how tightly to pack your sugar.

Two spreenkles for the price of one today – did you know you can make your own brown sugar? For light brown sugar, add 1 Tablespoon molasses. For dark brown sugar, add 2. Mix well, store air-tight.

  5. Well, doggone it! Now I am going to have to go out and invest in kitchen scales! I used to have some but they have disappeared in the mists of time. Hmmmmm…. I have misplaced more stuff than I can fathom at this point!
    I am going to start making my own brown sugar now – you are fabu!
