Measuring Equivalents


In my cooking today, I found myself trying to find the equivalent of almond extract to almond liqueur (which happens to be 1/2 tsp. extract  = 1 T. liqueur), then I had to convert that from cups! Talk about exercising my mommy brain. Fortunately I have a great cheat sheet to refer to. Here it is for those of you who may need a little help too! Feel free to copy it off to keep handy…

Measuring Equivalents

1/2 Tablespoon = 1 1/2 teaspoon

1 Tablespoon = 3 teaspoons = half fluid ounce = 15 ml

1/8 cup = 2 Tablespoons = 6 teaspoons = 30 ml

1/4 cup = 4 Tablespooons = 12 teaspoons = 2 fluid ounces = 50 ml

1/3 cup = 5 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon = 16 teaspoons = 75 ml

1/2 cup = 8 Tablespoons = 24 teaspoons = 4 fluid ounces = 125 ml

2/3 cup = 10 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons = 32 teaspoons = 150 ml

3/4 cup = 12 Tablespoons = 36 teaspoons = 6 fluid ounces = 175 ml

1 cup = 48 teaspoons

1 cup = 16 Tablespoons

8 fluid ounces = 1 cup = 1/2 pint = 1/4 quart

1 pint = 2 cups = 16 fluid ounces = 1/2 quart

1 quart = 2 pints = 32 fluid ounces = 4 cups = 1/4 gallon

1/2 gallon = 2 quarts = 4 pints = 8 cups = 64 fluid ounces

1 gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints = 16 cups = 128 fluid ounces

16 ounces = 1 pound

Dash = less than 1/8 teaspoon

1/4 tsp = 1.25 mL

1/2 tsp = 2.5 mL

1 tsp = 5 mL

1 Tbs = 15 mL

1/4 cup = 50 mL

1/3 cup = 75 mL

1/2 cup = 125 mL

2/3 cup = 150 mL

3/4 cup = 175 mL

1 cup = 250 mL

1 quart = 1 liter

  1. THANK YOU for this! I have been trying a lot of “old time” recipes that my grandmother used to make, and many of them call for a a gallon of this or an ounce of that….so it’s nice to know how many cups/gallon etc.

    Thanks!

  2. another trick is to google for type of measure you want to convert and what you want to change it to.

    if you google “cups tablespoons” for example it has a little box that comes up before your search results telling you one cup is 16 tablespoons. googling “tablespoons cups” tells you 1 tablespoon is 0.0625 cups.

    very useful, especially looking at online recipes if you have the google toolbar on your browser.
