american equivalents

I love Delia Online! But when discussing oven temps or ingredient amounts, I cannot follow recipes unless I first an "equivalents" site to convert the amounts. Is there any way you can post "x ml (x ounces)", for example, for your many American fans? Thank you for the amazingly easy custard recipe!
I will make it as soon as I can get the math conversion figured out!

American measures

Hello Sandy,

Most of Delia’s books are available in America and have American measures.

Amazon (and I expect others!) sell electronic gram scales and a British measuring jug which may be worth getting if you like to make lots of British recipes.

We have this chart on the site with American conversions if it’s of any use.

U.S.A. Measurements

Hi Sandy, I have the opposite problem to you, I have collected over the years many American and Canadian cookery books and I found the easiest way round the problem was to get american cup measures. It is a lot easier than trying to do the weight equivalent of e.g. a cup of sugar and a cup of flour.
It will pay, in the long run, to buy a set of scales and an english pint/litre jug measure.
all the best

A cup of chocolate

I have just re read The Help and have looked for recipes for Minny's caramel cake and the infamous Chocolate Pie. But when a recipe calls for "a cup of dark chocolate" i come u stuck! I know there are equivalents for flour,sugar,butter - but how do u put chocolate in a cup,is it chopped?how small?! Or am I missing a simple equivalent?

Cups of chocolate

Hi Suzie, I assume when the recipe calls for a cup of dark chocolate they mean a slab of chocolate, not chocolate powder? In that case I would get a packet of choclate buttons or cooking chocolate chips - the sort you put in choc-chip cookies - and measure out a cupful of them.
