# 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 checklist 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

Recipe Abbreviations

Cup = c or C

Fluid = fl

Gallon = gal

Ounce = oz

Package = pkg

Pint = pt

Pound = lb or #

Quart = qt

Square = sq

Tablespoon = T or Tbl or TBSP or TBS

Teaspoon = t or tsp

1. Great list!

2. 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!
