How to Measure Flour

How do you measure your flour? I bake often so I keep a canister of flour on my counter with a scoop in the canister for measuring into a dry measuring cup. I never use the measuring cup to scoop the flour from the canister. King Arthur Flour has a video that explains why it’s important to not scoop the flour from the canister or bag:

I enjoy the precision of baking and don’t mind the extra step it takes to measure flour this way. If you want to stick with your scooping method, just remember you probably will need to add less flour to your recipes. Or if you really want to be precise with measuring your ingredients the new digital scales are great.
