USA                                                Germany

1 cup of liquid                                   250 ml Flüssigkeit
1 cup of solid                                    100 g of solide, das auch unterschiedlich zwischen Zucker u. Stärke
1 TBS                                               1 EL grosse Löffel
1 tsp                                                  1 TL kleine Löffel

pinch of salt                                        ganz bisschen Salz


In Germany you cannot find self raising flour, so you need to add baking powder to it. The higher the Typ number it is, the higher the amount of gluten in the flour.
1 cup Self raising flour                         100g Mehl Typ 405 mit 1 TL Backpulver

That is for now. Updates to follow!
