8 fluid ounces and 16 tablespoons dry. I think that's right.

A US cup is 8-0z, 16 US tablespoons, or 236 ml.

An English cup is 10 imperial oz - or 20 4/5 US tablespoons, or 284 ml.

This is an example of why we should be weighing dry ingredients.

It's a good reason to go metric all the way around, southerncook!

If the memory is still instact, a cup i.e. w/saucer is usually 6 oz and a mug is between 8 and 10. If I am wrong I will be corrected here soon.

Michael in FtW is on the ball. with his answer.
