Hi there. Lovely recipe, but from a British perspective hard to follow - US tablespoons, cups and ounces all in one! My iPad was hot with the effort of all the different conversions šŸ˜¬. Any chance Food 52 you might think about standardising your units of measurement? PS l added Walnuts as they're my mother's favourites. They came out a treat. Many thanks, Sian (London, UK)
