Pack That Brown Sugar

I wasn't a huge baker as a girl.  I'd say I was more than content to let my mom do the work and yet, overly eager to help eating her delectable creations.  So, when it came time to be my own baker, I had a few things to learn.
Here's a tip I picked up from a dear friend who has take numerous culinary courses:  When using brown sugar, pack it firmly into the measuring cup.  How do you know if it's firm enough?  When you dump it into the bowl, the sugar should maintain the shape of the measuring cup.  Simple as that!

Hope the reminder's helpful!
