Some wisdom from my Mom:
Why do Americans measure ingredients while most other cultures weigh them? American pioneers traveled across the country in wagons or on horseback. Scales were too heavy and bulky to carry. However, every pioneer had a drinking cup and spoon handy. If a small amount of an ingredient was used, the spoon scooped it. If a large amount was used, the cup scooped it.
— from The Bread Book
Three people can follow the same recipe and end up with three entirely different masterpieces. The way each person measures (or doesn’t measure), the method of mixing ingredients, the length of time bread is kneaded, the method of kneading, the types of pans, the weather, the oven, etc., affects the final product. Each bread is uniquely yours and no one else can make it the way you do!
