Maybe I am more inexperienced in life and baking then I thought but I truely have no idea on this one! I found a recipe that calls for 3/8 Cup?l HOw do I do that I don'e have that measuring cup....is there a 1/8 C or something my set doesn't have?
Or does anyone know what I can use to get this amount?
Thanks for any and all help! I totally feel dumb on this one!
Half of a 1/4 cup measurement is 1/8....so if you need 3/8 cup....just measure out your 1/4 cup measurment 1 full time and then another measurement of half of that 1/4 cup. Hope that makes sense.
hi some measuring set come with an 1/8 and some not. an 1/8 c. is 2Tablespoons half of a 1/4 c. 4 Tablespoons so if you did a 1/8c. and 1/4c. you will have your 3/8 c. OK
Ok yea...now I totally feel like an idiot!! Thanks for clarifying!!! LOL DUH!! :|
don't feel like that I had to measure for tablespoons to answer. I have brain freeze can't remember half the time this was a good day ( smile) sammie
3/8th is 6 Tablespoons.
I do have an 1/8th measuring cup, but it didn't come in a set, I picked it up somewhere along the way. Pyrex also makes a small measuring class that is marked with teaspoons, tablespoons (up to 10 I think) and oz. I like it for small liquid amounts.
1 C =16 T
1/8 C = 2T
3/8 C = 6T
Or for liquids 3/8 cup = 3 ounces.
A standard coffee measure is 2 tablespoons = 1/8 cup. I think most of us have at least one of those in the house.
