US Cup to UK Cup Conversion Greetings, Natalie09. Responded to on March 11, 2012 Hello. I would want to prepare a dish that originated in North America. Nevertheless, I am having difficulty with their dimensions. I purchased some measuring cups from the United Kingdom, but would they be suitable for an American recipe? Sincere thanks! I reside in Nigeria.

I purchased the book How to Be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella when I was in Finland for the Christmas vacation, but since returning home I have been unable to determine the exact baking measurements. I am accustomed to grams, not cups. Please assist me with converting cups to grams. Thanks. Do you have a chart for converting grams to ounces? There is a little variation between British, European, and Australian cups and American cups.

The UK cup is 250ml and the US cup is 240ml, hence the UK half cup is 125ml and the US half cup is 120ml (quarter cups tend to be the same at 60mls). However, for the majority of recipes, the variation is negligible and will not influence the final product.

For baking, it may be preferable to subtract two teaspoons from each cup measure to convert from UK to US units. One thing to check for in American recipes is how the flour is measured, as the results can vary greatly depending on whether the cup is filled by scooping the flour into it or by spooning the flour into it and then leveling it.

When in doubt, it is preferable to spoon the flour into the measuring cup and then level the top with a palette knife or thin-bladed spatula. Due to the fact that components are packed into cups differently, there is no “standard” weight for each cup, however we have shared typical measurements in the past (see link below).

In addition, if you visit the Recipes area of Nigella’s website, you will discover a button labeled “Equivalents and Conversions” at the bottom of her recipes. This generates a table of frequent substitutions between the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as metric to imperial weight conversions.

#### How do Americans measure cups?

Cookbook | Recipes | Ingredients | Units of Measurement One cup is equivalent to 16 tablespoons, 12 pint, 14 quart, or 8 fluid ounces. A US cup contains approximately 237 mL. The approximate equivalents of 240 mL and 250 mL are a US pint of 500 mL and a pound of 500 g, respectively.

1. In Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, a metric cup is 250 milliliters.
2. Historically, these nations utilized the imperial system, in which a cup contained 284 mL or 6/5 US cups.
3. A Japanese rice cup holds 180 milliliters.
4. This size measuring cup is sometimes supplied with rice cookers.

A teacup, a common unit of measurement in Indian cuisine, is approximately 190 mL, or one-third of an imperial (UK) cup.

You may purchase cup measurers at your local supermarket, but even the most dedicated bakers may not have one on hand. The United Kingdom and the United States use vastly different weights and measurements, so each time you attempt to use an American recipe in the United Kingdom, you’re going to run into problems.
