mL = US cups x 236.6
With UK cups, you can convert cups to mL by multiplying your cup value by 250. The formula for converting UK cups to milliliters looks like this:
mL = UK cups x 250
Besides, you can use our mL and grams converter when you need to convert baking ingredients to weight instead.
Because there are two different volumetric measures for a cup, it is essential to be sure which one you are using is suitable for the purpose used.
