Recently someone from Britain was commenting that he had a hard time using American (and Canadian, I guess) cookbooks and magazines because the measurements were so different. In particular butter, and more particularly how much is a cup and a stick. So I thought I'd help out.
1 cup = 240g
1/2 cup = 120g
1 stick = 1/4 cup = 60g
I, on the other hand, am not quite sure what a knob of butter is. So anyone out there from the UK.....
If there's anyone out there with other conversions to add to the list, please share them in the comments and I'll create a complete listing.
Please email me any of your questions, and if I don't have the answer, I'll certainly try find it for you.
