Since cup measurements differ from country to country, here are my personal measurements:


1 cup flour = 120gm

1 cup milk  = 200ml

1 cup butter/margarine = 225gm

1 cup sugar = 200gm

1 cup rice = 185gm


1 tbsp butter = 15gm

1 tbsp baking powder = 15gm

1 tsp baking powder = 5gm

1 tsp yeast = 3gm

1 tbsp yeast = 10gm

ALWAYS use liquid milk UNLESS the recipe states otherwise.

How can I print your recipes from your website?
