I recently purchased Nigella's measuring cups. I am planning to use these cups for a few US recipes, however I am needing some guidance on how to use these cups to measure dry ingredients. Reviewing comments from other individuals on sites like Amazon, It appears that there are two different methods to measure dry ingredients. One way is to spoon a dry good (using flour as an example) to the line noted inside of cup. The other way is to spoon dry good to rim of cup and level off. Could you please help clarify the proper use of these cups? Thank you. Sincerely Sonia
I am a new member and I would like to know the measurement of 1 cup? I will be trying Banana and walnut cake from your recipes. Thanks, Neha.

Hello! I have bought "How to be a domestic Goddess" book a few years ago and baked many of lovely cakes from this book. I've found this site by chance recently. I wonder why Banana Bread has different amount of some ingredients between this page and the book? I followed my book to make the bread and I got a wonderful result. I don't want to change any amount for the ingredients. Have you updated this bread recipe? Thank you. Koko

We just made Nigella's Instant Pancake Mix and it seems salty. Is it meant to be like that?

I would like to make Nigella's Pus recipe for Halloween. But just to be sure, do jelly packets mean Jello?
