WeeSooz -
yes - there is a differance in the American imperial and our (Australian & UK) Metric measurements.

Here is a link for you - shows from Cups to Spoons and even oven temps.

This is also an excellant link - for when you want to convert an American recipe into Metric quantities.

Weesooz UK measurements are not the same as US measurements in baking as well as cooking. But, in cooking you can get away with a bit more or less of this and that, without fear of the recipe not working. Baking you need to be close if not spot on.

check the links.

Also a link to an article from Rose Levy Beranbaum on using British Flour versus US flour. She found, while experimenting with her recipes in the UK, that Brit flour does not work the same as US AP flour.

You were right, my oven is baking 20'C hotter than what it states on the dial - so grateful to my new oven thermometer icon_smile.gif

I made a batch and a half and it made a perfect 16 cupcakes icon_smile.gif I will be using this recipe again.

I haven't had success adapting recipes from cupcakes to cakes or vice versa. I think the timing is different. Usually middle gets under or over cooked. Here's another link for everyone: http://www.fasteasyrecipe.com/recipes/cake
