    I always use vanilla extract instead of vanilla sugar using 1 to 2 tsp in the recipe
    Also on this site someone posted conversions.
    One can buy a European measuring cup in kitchen stores etc.
    I have one at home!

    Also on the Net there are easy conversion calculators to download!!!

    Hope this helps!

    This looks like it would be great. Wish we had the English measurements here. How big is a packet of vanilla sugar?
