How much is 1 cup?

I really hate having to ask, but how much is 1 cup?
Since I live in Sweden I'm not familiar with that term, here we just use deciliter..

And while I'm at it I might as well ask about another thing.. Tb=tablespoon and tsp=teaspoon, right?

A U. S. cup = 8 fluid ounces which = 236.59 milliliters or 2.37 deciliters.

You can go to Google and type in information for any conversion. I did: How many milliliters in 8 fluid ounces and got the answer.

Oh ok.. Sorry, usually I'm not very good at the whole searching thing; I always get the most bizarre hits.. But thanks a lot anyway :)

PoG,
no problem - you don't have to find everything, you just have to know where to ask ;o)

A lot of the cookbooks in my collection are British or European. In Canada we are "multilingual" when it comes to measurements so I do okay.

POG,,,,,,,,,,,,if you know any Americans have them bring you a measuring cup that has both the metric system on one side and the American on the other..........I've had to bring several measuring cups to the Kazakhs here..........
