How big is a nob of butter?
Originally I thought you’d made a typo, and had meant to write ‘knob’, which is how I would describe a knob of butter, but when I looked it up in the dictionary, knob is a rounded protruberance, and nob is a head. Same, same. The nob is roughly the size of the head of an average sized cock, depending on the size of your pan. The bigger the pan, the larger the cock.
