My step-mother who is American has invited us to Thanksgiving tomorrow and she's tasked me to make a blueberry pie but I've searched to find a traditional recipe but they are all in cups which I can't translate.

Would any nice MNetters happen to have a good recipe with metric measures please?

Alternatively just get your self some measuring cups smile

A cup is a small mug, or 8 fl oz on your measuring jug.

Though my grandma's recipe was 'make pastry. Fill pie with blueberries, lots of sugar, couple heaped spoons of cornflour, put pastry on top', so shouldn't need cups anyway!

Thank you all. This could be interesting! Off to make some pastry now grin.
