I'v done it roughly as:

Ricotta 300g
Ground Almonds 330g
Splenda 250g
Cocoa 40g

The 2 websites I use are http://www.dovesfarm.co.uk/resources/conversion-tables/us-cups-conversion-table/

& http://allrecipes.co.uk/how-to/44/cooking-conversions.aspx

It's worth remembering that 'cups' don't seem to be the same conversion for wet as dry ingredients but I think if you were 'out' 50g or so it probably wouldn't matter much.  :)

Sounds nice!

Think Patti may have an answer, I'm clueless but if it helps my measuring jug says a cup is equivalent to just under 300ml; just under half a pint.

WHOA!  There is only 125g in a whole large tub of Splenda. 

I've just been down and weighed a full cup of Spenda and it works out at 30g.  You can't really convert cups by weight, you have to convert them by volume, but it's much easier to get some cup measures, I have a set - you can get them in any kitchenware shop.  I think even Poundland and Poundstretcher have them.  Lakeland ones cost £5.99 but I've seen them a lot cheaper than that.  There - set of cups and spoons £1.88 Amazon.

Exactly. Cups are a measure of volume, not weight. A cup of water (or other liquid, like milk) weighs about 250g. But a cup of Splenda weighs much less than that because Splenda is not as heavy as water.

One way to do it is to search in Google "1 cup Splenda in g". If Google itself doesn't calculate it, it will usually turn up a few websites and forums where other people have worked it out. Look at 3 or 4 of them to get a good idea of an average answer (if you just look at one, that person might have gotten it wrong!). That's how I do it when I convert recipes for here (I cook in cups normally).

I did post a reply to this earlier but when I returned later it had disappeared.

I posted that I realised I had made a mistake the 1st time (I was in a hurry) & the 250g was actually for sugar so would have to be 'translated' to an amount of Splenda.

I do have & use measuring cups myself but have found that liquids are different to solids & different types of solids are different in weight too.

The 2 links I put in my 1st post are quite useful for converting  :)

Hope this post doesn't vanish too  :(
