The recipe was posted 10 years ago when using volume measurements for baking was common. It is a much loved recipe. I think the practice among home cooks of using a scale for baking is relatively new. While it certainly makes things easier and more uniform, it can be intimidating to the novice baker who might not even own a scale. Sadly, the author of this recipe, Kukla, who was an active member of this community, died in 2015. (Here’s a tribute to her. https://food52.com/blog/15045-a-dinner-in-honor-of-longtime-food52-er-kukla). I hope you try the recipe and like it.
