Scant, what does it mean?

What does scant mean when you’re cooking or baking?

It simply means that you only want just enough of that measurement or a little under.


1/2 Cup self raising (SR) flour, scant.

Just a little less than half a cup.

    Learnt something new, as I’ve never come across a recipe with that written on it.

    1. Kathleen I think some of my Mums recipe books had it in many yrs ago. She always said give the measure cup a shake and make it a little less.
