    Hello can I ask re the cup of suger ..it states 1 5/8 ..apologies for sounding dim but how do you work out 5/8 in a cup..im used to ounces, lbs and grammes etc. Does the cup come in set sizes and it is one 5/8 isnt it and not 15/8. Im in the UK so not used to working in cups.

      North American cup is 8oz in volume - 5/8 cup would be 5 oz volume

      This is an easier way to get five eighths of a cup. Four eights is the same as half a cup so it's just the one eights you need to figure out. I have a one eighth measuring cup but if you don't remember that there are 16 tablespoons in a cup. That means there are 2 tablespoons in one eighth of a cup.

      I'm not sure how much difference 2 tablespoons of sugar will make in a recipe with so much sugar already in it but I'll find out soon enough. I'm hoping to try this recipe out. It looks sinfully delicious! ;-)
