WHITE GRANULATED SUGAR – Unlike flour, sugar is measured by filling a measuring cup or spoon to the brim and then leveling it with the back of a knife. Because sugar is heavier than flour, it is less prone to settle in the measuring cup. Additionally, it is more forgiving than other ingredients in recipes because the sweetness of a final dish relies on the individual’s taste buds.
