The ‘Quaker® Oats’ Quaker Oatmeal Kitchens offer the following tips:
• Baking is more scientific than other cooking methods and requires careful measuring. To ensure success, it is important to accurately measure ingredients using the correct measuring utensils.
• Only liquids should be measured in glass or plastic measuring cups with pouring spouts.
• Nested plastic or metal measuring cups should be used to measure dry ingredients and thick/sticky ingredients such as peanut butter. Use a metal spatula or straight edge of a table knife to level flour even with top of cup. To measure brown sugar, pack firmly in measuring cup even with top of cup.
• When changing a recipe from a shiny metal baking pan to a glass baking dish or dark metal baking pan, reduce the baking temperature by 25°F.
• When writing down a newly created recipe, accurately record all ingredients and all steps required to prepare your recipe.
• Don’t forget to proofread your recipe carefully!
• When baking cookies, Quaker Quick (1 minute) or Old Fashioned (5 minutes) Oats can be substituted for up to one-third the amount of flour called for in the recipe. Old Fashioned Oats give cookies a heartier texture.
• Some drop and rolled cookie recipes made with Old Fashioned Oats may require 2 to 3 additional tablespoons of flour to keep the cookies from spreading too much.
• Measure oats like other dry ingredients in nested dry measuring cups. Use a metal spatula or straight edge of a table knife to level oats even with the top of cup.
