How Many Ounces In a Cup?
Question asked by George:
Hi. I’m cooking an old family recipe and it’s quoting ingredients in cups.
Converting From Cups To Ounces
Hi George. As with Kelly’s similar question about converting between gallons and ounces, the answer very much depends on where in the world you are. We’ve discussed the craziness of cup sizes in our article about cups and tablespoons, should you wish to have a quick read. In summary, if you have a recipe featuring measurements in cups then it’s likely to be one of two things:
- A US recipe (using the US customary cup)
- An old (pre-1970s) UK recipe (using the imperial cup)
