Baking Measurements

Baking MeasurementsSometimes when I’m not sure about a recipe but want to try it anyway, I scale down the recipe to 50% of the original. In those circumstances, I found it very difficult to calculate 50% of 3/4 cup, or to measure 50% of 1.5 tablespoon, etc. Then I found this handy table in my “Baking for Dummies” book. For instance 3/4th of a cup is equal to 12 tablespoons, so half of it would be 6 tablespoons.


Here are the frequently asked questions on baking measurements:

    Hi, I live in Australia and have done cooking/baking near 65 years, so I’m pretty familiar with weights and measure conversion and what I don’t know these latter years Dr. Google has helped me out. This time though I’m a bit baffled as for the first time I’ve come across a measurement of 3/8th of a cup. Now, I’m wondering who would have a cup that measures 3/8th of a cup let alone 1/8th in their set of cups. Also, the problem is that 3/8th of “whatever” solid may not necessarily weigh the same as 3/8th of a different solid.
    My question is: What would 3/8th of a cup of “breadcrumbs” weigh in grams.

    I just wish people would use or include ingredients with equivalents (cups/ozs/grams/mls) as we don’t all live in the same country with ONE SET OF WEIGHTS. (IMPERIAL/METRIC).
    I came across your site while searching and found that it’s very helpful except for – my question.
    A reply at your earliest convenience would be great, Thank you.

      I’m very sorry to have missed this message. Some of the messages got mixed up with spam and I found it rather late. Regarding the conversions, you can always Google and it will be more helpful than the chart in my personal opinion. For instance, I Googled 1 cup of breadcrumbs (dry) in grams and found out that it’s 150 grams, so 3/8ths of that will be 56.25 gms.

    There is no need for everyone to measure according to a single standard since half of three quarters equals six tablespoons. For example, if a cup is a standard then it is not mandatory for the.Thank you for article sharing.

      Sorry for not having noticed this message before. Actually you can straightaway type in Google like “190 gms of milk to cups” and you will get the answer. When I did so it shows it’s 3/4th of a cup. Hope this will work out for the other measurements too.

    Hello, My name is Georgina, and I have a question abt. g. Forty g’s of mini chocolate chips. I have no idea how much that is. I sent my daug. to the store to by them. I don’t have any other chocolate chips to compare them with; I’m sort of at a standstill. But I’m going to assume that they are the small ones, only because they seem a mitty tinne to me. So back to my question, how much is 40g’s in % or cups. I don’t no. Thank you for being there. And as well thank you so much for your help. Regards: G.P.

    • Madhuram

      I Googled for 50 gms of chocolate chips and found that it’s about 1/3rd of a cup. So I assume 40gms will be a little less than that.
