Ruby advises . . .
Ruby said “You’ll be a better cook if . . . “ “you watch your spoon measurements. When the recipe states ‘a spoonful’, a LEVEL spoonful is intended. Take a spoonful, then use a flat-bladed knife to level off the top. When a ‘rounded spoonful’ is specified, there should be roughly as much of the ingredient above the spoon as is contained in its bowl. ‘A heaped spoonful’ should be roughly piled with the ingredient.”
