Full Answer

Some ingredients require special precautions when measuring. Flour requires sifting and spooning into the dry measuring cup, leveling with the back of a knife. Accurate brown sugar measurements involve packing the ingredient into the cup so it holds its form as one removes it. When measuring liquid ingredients, the cook places the cup on a level surface and moves his head so the eyes are level with the mark on the cup.
