Sifting flour is an old-fashioned technique rarely used in modern baking as today's flour is per-sifted. Here are three methods of sifting:
- Use a flour sifter. Fill the flour sifter with flour and either shake or squeeze the handle. The sifted flour will sift through and into a bowl or onto a surface. Most bakers use waxed paper to cover the surface.
- Use a sieve. This is the easiest way and you can sift all of your dry ingredients (baking powder, baking soda or salt) into a bowl or onto waxed paper.
- Sift into a measuring cup. Use a sieve or flour sifter. This gives the most accurate measurement as the flour is not compacted when measured using the scoop-and-sweep method to measure flour. The flour is sifted directly into the measuring cup skipping this step.
