american cup weights

In American recipes "cups" are frequently used as a measure for both liquids and dry goods - much to the confusion of UK would-be cooks.

As a measure of volume for liquids, a cup = 8 fluid ounces = a half-pint = 237 mililitres.

As a measure of weight for dry goods, a cup = 8 ounces = a half-pound = 225 grammes.

thankyou :D

i have big cups and small cups in my house lol
I have my measuring cups from the US, but don't find them any different from the ones I have purchased here

i've seen loads of recipes with cup measurements , usually american , so with the conversion we can adapt them
I always used a standard english coffee mug as my cup measure, and it's the only measurement I ever used.
Yep, I like the KISS principle. :)
