*I’d like to preface this post with a big fat, “I don’t care what’s right, since I don’t like cooking…” But, it’s still somewhat interesting. (Iris Took, would love to hear what your chef BF thinks…)
THEN I met C. He strongly believed that it was irrelevent as to which measuring cup type one used whether liquid or dry! WHAT?! I argued. Emphatically. He couldn’t possibly be right!
My sister and Mom nearly lost.it. “The pie is going to be ruined!”
I found myself on C.’s side of the fence arguing, “It makes no difference! Watch and see.”
They shook their heads in disbelief.
It worked. Tasted fine.
So I looked it up.
Um, there is not a clear answer.
Some say that it just works better to put solids (flour/sugar) in a scoop rather then a liquid cup.
Some say there is a SLIGHT difference (because of volume and math, blah, blah, blah)…but not anything close enough to make a difference in the recipe.
I’m thinking this is a potato/potahtoe issue. (Though I’ve never met anyone who says, “potahtoe”.)
