It's half term and I've temporarily become a housewife again (I work in a school). The kids are out and I'm in the mood for baking. I've found a nice sweet bread/cake recipe on an American website and have been having fun trying out a set of cup measures that I bought in Florida. I don't know how Americans cope - scooping the dry ingredients and trying not to spill them - then measuring the wet ingredients - oh dear I've forgotten to measure the sugar so now I've got to wash and thoroughly dry the cup before I can continue. As for measuring butter ????? It all makes my add and weigh scales seem very, very simple. I suppose it's just a matter of what you're used to.
