Need help converting UK recipe to US measurements

fickle | Sep 24, 2008 06:50 PM

I'm helping a friend bake a cheesecake that his British cousin sent him. What is the best online calculator to use for converting it from UK measurements to US ones?

Are these conversions correct?
60g (butter) - 1/4 cup
160g (castor sugar) - 2/3 cup
300 g (sour cream) - 1 1/3 cup
400 g (cream cheese) - 1 3/4 cup

And another stupid question, is a British digestive biscuit the same size as a US one? It calls for 9 biscuits except I have no idea if the size is the same as ours! I know he wants to remain faithful to his cousin's recipe but I may have to adapt it with some recipes I use to make it work!

Any thoughts?
