450g bowl for Christmas pudding

    Avoca recipe says use 450g bowls - what size is that in pints/litres (which are used in every other recipe I have ever seen)!

    I would have guessed they meant 450ml

    If you compared similar recipes you might get an idea, or if we saw the recipe it might be easy to tell if 450ml sounds right.

    Same question here but no recipe

    Thanks - this is the recipe (this is from an online source). It says it makes one 6 pint pudding (eek???) or several smaller ones. But the newspaper version from Avoca said 4 X 450 gr bowl.
