Have you tried looking for a recipe on The cool thing is that you can change all of the recipes to metric and back with just a click of your mouse! And I've found a lot of recipes there that are also on this site. Good luck!

A stick of butter is 115g. I recommend making your life easier though and going to Asda/Tesco etc, etc and buying yourself a set of measuring cups from the kitchen wares section - they are only £1 or so for the plastic ones and not much more for the metal ones. Then just proceed as per recipe. Good luck!

AU, UK and American measuring cups & spoons:
(Along with more info than you ever wanted on American cookery weights & measures. Also has conversion calculator.)

Wish there were UK & AU measuring cups & spoons available in U.S.
