Do I Really Need A Measurement Conversion Chart?
Have you ever watched a cooking show versus a baking show? Chefs tend to throw in a dash more of this or a pinch more of that, because cooking is much more lenient, where baking is an exact science.
Bakers measure everything precisely to ensure things rise, have the right texture, and taste good. Having a measurement conversion chart on hand makes working with recipes so much easier, and who doesn’t want that?
Know Your Measurement Abbreviations And Tools
Before we start converting our dry and liquid measurements, let’s talk about abbreviations. Often recipes abbreviate measurements. Here is a quick list of standard abbreviations and what they mean:
t or tsp = Teaspoon
T or Tbsp = Tablespoon
c = Cups
oz. = Fluid Ounces
oz = Ounces
lb = Pound
pt = Pint
qt = Quart
gal = gallon
What’s the Difference Between Dry and Liquid Measuring Cups?
It’s all in the kitchen tools! Whether you are cooking or baking, using the correct measuring tools for liquids, dry, and solid ingredients is essential.
- Solid or dry measuring cups have a flat top so that you can level off your ingredients. (See our favorites here.)
- Liquid measuring cups usually have a handle and spout for pouring. (See our favorites here.)
The reason why it is so important to use the right kitchen tools is because liquid measuring cups measure volume, where 1 cup of a liquid ingredient would be equal to 8 fluid ounces. However, 1 cup of dry ingredients does not always equal 8 ounces in weight.
Depending on the dry ingredient, 1 cup of oats will weigh less than 1 cup of sugar. It makes sense now, right?
How Do You Convert Liquid and Dry Measurements?
It’s time to whip up a batch of cookies, but you only want half of what the recipe makes. Or maybe you need to double your punch recipe for a party. Here’s a list of measurement conversions for both dry, solids and liquids:
3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon or ½ fluid ounce
1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons or ½ fluid ounce
2 tablespoons = 1/8 cup or 1 fluid ounce
3 tablespoons = 1 1/2 fluid ounces
4 tablespoons = ¼ cup or 2 fluid ounces
6 tablespoons = 3/8 cup or 3 fluid ounces
12 tablespoons = ¾ cup or 6 fluid ounces
¼ cup = 4 tablespoons or 2 fluid ounces
1/3 cup = 5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon
3/8 cup = ¼ plus 2 tablespoons
½ cup = 8 tablespoons or 4 fluid ounces or ¼ pint
2/3 cup = 10 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons
5/8 cup = ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons
¾ cup = 12 tablespoons or 6 fluid ounces
7/8 cup = ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons
1 cup = 16 tablespoons or 8 fluid ounces or ½ pint
2 cups = 1 pint or 16 fluid ounces
3 cups = 1 ½ pints or 24 fluid ounces
4 cups = 1 quart or 32 fluid ounces
½ gallon = 2 quarts or 4 pints or 8 cups or 64 fluid ounces
1 gallon = 4 quarts or 8 pints or 16 cups or 128 fluid ounces
