Double-checking Nigella Lawson clementine cake recipe

inibble | Mar 8, 2009 07:54 PM

I saw Nigella make an easy-looking clementine cake on the Food Network a few years back. I'm just now getting around to making it...and I'm not sure which recipe is the "right" one. On the Food Network website ( it says to use 2 1/3 cups ground almonds; on Nigella's website ( it says: 250g ground almonds.

Now, does 250g ground almonds = 2 1/3c ground almonds?

According to, 250g = 8.81849oz.
Doesn't 8 oz = 1 c.? Or is that volume and not weight?

I decided to try a heaping cup of ground almonds for this go (will let you know how it turns out), but I'm curious as to what everyone thinks, since I know this was (is?) a popular recipe.
