Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I'll use whichever of imperial or metric is given in a recipe or, where both are given, the one I feel suits me better for the recipe, eg. I like to think of my sponge cakes as 8oz of butter, flour and caster sugar.
American measures are something else though. They use cups for one thing and their liquid measures are different (eg Imperial pint is 568ml, US pint is 473ml). I'm not equipped to deal with these and would have to do some conversions.
