Cooking Conversions


Pin It Now!


This is the conversion chart I use when I scale down recipes to make just 2 portions instead of 4 or 6 portions.  I thought this information could help other people cooking for two (or three)

                        ½ recipe                                1/3 recipe                 

¼ c     =          2 Tbl                           =          1 Tbl + 1 tsp____    

1/3 c   =          2 Tbl + 2 tsp              =          1 Tbl + 2 ¼ tsp__     

½ c     =          ¼ c                             =          2 Tbl + 2 tsp___       

2/3 c   =          1/3 c                           =          3 Tbl + 1 ½ tsp_       

¾ c     =          6 Tbl                           =          ¼ c_________         

1 c        =          ½ c                             =          1/3 c                        __

1 Tbl   =          1 ½ tsp                       =          1 tsp                         __

1 tsp    =          ½ tsp                          =          generous ¼ tsp         __

½ tsp  =          ¼ tsp                          =          scant ¼ tsp               __ 

¼ tsp  =          1/8 tsp (pinch)          =          small pinch                 __



1 c  =  16 Tbl  =  8 fl oz
1 Tbl  =  3 tsp
1 fl oz  =  2 Tbl
1 pint  =  2 c
2 pints  =  1 quart
