Maple Doughnut Bars

Baking is a more precise science than cooking due to its chemistry, because a few teaspoons too much of one ingredient could potentially completely ruin a dessert. A chef can add more salt or lemon juice to a chicken dish to affect the taste and not the chemistry, and while a baker can affect the taste of a dish, the basic ingredients (water, flour, sugar, butter) affect the chemistry. All this to say, to the Americans that may read this, this particular dish uses a scale and weights only because it needs to be that precise. Ten different scoops of flour can weigh ten different weights depending on the type of flour, brand, how packed it may be, the age, or one hundred other factors.
