Should You Measure Sugar by Weight or Volume?

Many experts are adamant that dry ingredients like sugar should be measured by weight instead of volume, especially when used for baking.

The reason is that the density of different sugars varies slightly, so volume measurements will likely yield an incorrect amount of ingredients. Additionally, when using a cup or tablespoon, the amount that the sugar is compressed and above or under the measurement line will alter the actual amount.

Experts recommend having a digital food scale on hand for measuring sugar rather than measuring spoons or cups for the most accurate results.
