    Sarah you could you could use Google Translate, in another case let me know and I'll send you translated recipe.

  • Sarah Kimsey

    Thank you! I used bing translate which helped, but I don't understand the measurements, a glass of oil and a package of flour., etc

  • Andrea Chatziathanasiou

    I hope these will help: 1 can of orange soft drink (like orange Fanta) - 250 ml 1 glass of oil - I usually use the common measurement cup instead, so it is like 1 cup 1 pack of flour is 1kg flour for all the uses (medium flour). Hope I helped

  • Sarah Kimsey

    You are so kind. Thank you.

    Unfortunately Google translate is not reliable at all! You can try it out from Greek to English and you'll see what I mean. Often the translation into English doesn't make sense
