One Secret To Professional Baking
One of the biggest factors that set apart professional bakers from hobby bakers is the consistency of quality results. How do they do that? Experience is not all! In order to make great desserts every time you need to make sure your ingredients are measured correctly. The best way to do that is to use a 9$ digital scale (not that much for all the benefits!).
Most of us are used to cups and spoons, yet, how many times have you ended up with desserts that were too dense, too dry, too wet, didn’t spread, spread too much, etc.? In order to measure well with cups and spoons you must use the spoon-and-level method, yet, even then you can’t ensure a 100% match in the amount you used the last time you made the recipe. A digital scale will not only save you time but will reduce the need for cleanup (which saves even more time and money, too).
If you knew there is one thing (less than 10$) that will significantly improve your baking forever, wouldn’t you at least give it a chance?
