I also posted the question here on the Hotline, but perhaps it was viewed as a rhetorical question, as no one has answered it. It's not.
Here is what I posted to the recipe https://food52.com/recipes... , paraphrased:
Was this recipe tested by the Food52 test kitchen using cup (volume) measures for the water? A cup of water does not = 8 ounces but rather, 8 fluid ounces, which = 8.32 ounces.
I'm asking simply what the correct amount of water is. (I'd use 236 grams if I hadn't seen the "8 ounces" for 1 cup there; 8 ounces = 226 grams.)
I really do want to try this recipe! And yes, that 1.36 ounces of water overall will make a difference. Thanks so much. ;o)
