Recently @RTcastMichael and I have really gotten into the Great British Baking Show. He really likes it (won't actively admit it, so I'm outing him here) and I really like to get inspired and make my own bakes.


But, I also found out that the recipes for what they're actually making ON the show also exist online - and in books (the books are what I want, but online will start). The books are way more comprehensive and have a CRAP TON of recipes broken out per season. 


Oh man, what's this? Link to the recipe in question I'm wanting to try out, the Apricot Couronne from Season 2?


BUT - the recipes are written in British measurements. I attempted to use an online converter and receive gibberish that looks like this:

I was attempting to convert what 5 grams of salt is in American. Luckily, I can round with this one and be like, "Oh okay, roughly like 1 teaspoon of salt."


Others, I'm not so lucky. 


Surely there are bakers or Brits on here that have a little experience with translating recipes... Do you have any tips on this? Or should I seriously go out and buy a scale and learn how to measure things in grams?
