Cup: if in continental Europe a cup is generally understood to be a measure of 250 ml.
in Anglo-Saxon countries the cup corresponds to 16 CT and the CT.
in turn, it corresponds to just under 15 ml.
therefore a cup corresponds to 232 ml.!

THEREFORE: be careful when converting doses and quantities from a recipe from these areas!
