or perhaps search for a set like these from eBay - http://www.all-creatures.org/recipes/u-measuringcups-dry.html - then there is no calculating to do.

Hi, I have their sequel 'Veganomicon'. I tried converting stuff from cups to liquids but this tends to be a little tricky as cups go by volume rather than weight. In the end I bought a set of measuring cups from a local department store relatively cheaply and everything I've made since, including cup cakes, has turned out fine. Amazon Uk sell these sets of measuring cups- they are well worth it and make things really easy.

Yeah I'd say get yourself measuring cups. I had to buy myself a scale to cook from cookbooks from the UK. It was a wise decision :)
