leveling the spoon




I'm always happy to open a new container of baking products.
It's almost as though I expect my goodies will turn out magically lighter and fluffier.
Did your Mom always slice the sealed paper lid in half so that she had a perfect leveler for her measuring spoons?
Mine did ..
and I always do too.

Somethings just don't get any easier.

all for now ..

  1. My mom did the same thing and I do it too....religiously! Funny, I was thinking about this very topic just yesterday as I made up a batch of buns that had a tsp of baking powder in them.

    Enjoy reading your blog! Keep writing!

  4. My mom also did not teach me that trick. She always uses rounded spoons...and I do that quite often as well . . .which can become a problem when giving away recipes. I've had to do a fair bit of recalculating.

  9. Yes, she did. And somehow I'd forgotten that trick. Good thing my baking powder is getting low. ☺

  10. What a neat trick! I was just thinking today that I really do need to get back to leveling my ingredients. Some things lately haven't turned out right, and I think maybe that's why. I've gotten lazy!

  11. Yes, my mom did the same thing and I do too. My kids and husband however, I am still teaching.
