    If i'm cooking a US recipe and it says 3/4 of a cup - how much would that be in UK measurements please?!
    Its not a liquid if that makes a difference!

    Thank you! :D

    It depends on what dry ingredient you are using - the cup weight of flour and sugar will be different. I use the site that Tink has given you, but better still, I have invested in a set of US cups for most of the recipes I use from the Allrecipes website. I also like the fact that that website has a conversion option from cups to metric.
    A set of cups will cost only 4.66 from Tesco.

    Thanks Tink - i'll have a look in a sec!
    This is the first thing i think ive cooked thats American, i got the recipe from the food network website but it might be worth investing in some cups if there are going to be a few more things i fancy making!

    Allrecipes and the Food Network sites are my favourites. I love Alton Brown's homemade pretzels recipe (divine) and Paula Deen's meatloaf recipe. Maybe my favourite recipe of all is Allrecipe's Downeast Maine Pumpkin bread recipe. It is delicious. Can I ask you what you are cooking Kate?
