This one I can remember because a math teacher taught me. A pint's a pound the world around. A pound is 16 ounces.

Since there are two cups in a pint, there are 8 ounces in a cup.

I hope ThriftyFun members from the U.S. can confirm this but I'm under the impression that 1 cup is 8 Imperial ounces. 2 cups is the equivalent to one U.S. pint. An English pint is 20 ounces. Don't mix the two when using a recipe. Stick to American or English. I found the ideal solution was to buy a measuring cup with U.S. measurements which I use to make American recipes. I use my normal measuring jugs for my English recipes.
