I have noticed that alot of recipes on CC call for a stick of butter. How much is a stick of butter that the recipes refer to? Here in the uk a stick of butter is 225g. Is that right? Is it the same is the us?
A stick of butter is 4 oz or 1/2 cup.
4 ounces = 113.398093 grams
so your stick would be a tad under 2 of our sticks.
just cut your stick in half to get one of ours (close enough)
there is 454 grams in a pound right? so I'd say go with what Doug said...seems like your 1 stick is about 1/2 a pound. I'd cut that stick right in half and use that!
thats brilliant, thank u so much for ur help
