You will need
    • wheat flour;
    • faceted glass;
    • tablespoon;
    • teaspoon;
    • measuring Cup.
It's convenient to determine the weight of flour using conventional faceted glass, which kept many from the Soviet era. Filled to the brim, it houses approximately 160 g of wheat flour. If fill and faceted glass to the top risks (at this level its volume is 200 ml), the flour in the Cup is about 130 grams.
If you don't have a glass of the desired volume, measure out the flour by tablespoon. This process will take more time, but perhaps it will be even more accurate. Standard tablespoon (length sachibalaya capacity she is 7 cm) filled with "slide", weighs 15 g of flour, without the "roller coaster" - 10 g. As a rule if your prescription is proposed to measure flour tablespoons, you mean just the volume with the "hill" unless otherwise specified. You can determine the weight of flour and five-centimeter spoon. In this case, no "slides" in a spoon and placed 7 g, and the "hill" - 12 G.
It is sometimes necessary to measure very small amount of flour – 5, 10, 15 g. In this case, it is convenient to use a teaspoon. Filling it to the brim, you will get 4 grams of flour, and if we leave the "hill" - 5 g.
It so happens that there are no ordinary glass, but there is a clear container with graduations for volume determination. For example, this can be a glass from the slow cooker or bread machine. In this case, you can weigh the flour, on the assumption that 100 ml of flour contains about 65 grams. This method is inconvenient that you may not be enough deposited on glass slices. For example, it is easy to calculate that 100 grams of flour is approximately equal to 153 ml, but it is unlikely you will be able to find the capacity verified. Thus, this method is not precise enough.
And finally, the unreliable but fast way. All you need is flour in the packaging in which it was sold, and a good eye. For example, you have a pound flour, a recipe you need to measure 500 g. it is Easy to guess that you need to pour half of the packaging. However, to avoid misunderstanding, use the weighting method "by eye" only in extreme cases when nothing else or the proportions are not so important.
