How can I measure the amounts needed for cooking or baking when I don’t have a teaspoon or tablespoon available? You need to know how many teaspoons in a tablespoon or vice versa.
I think I am not the only one who loses kitchen tools especially measuring spoons 🙂 If you are like me, then join me to learn how to convert units to each other.
How Many Teaspoons in a Tablespoon?
The most important equation I usually need is the conversion of tablespoon and teaspoon to each other. The golden conversion equation is:
1 tablespoon equals exactly 3 teaspoons.
|1 cup||16 tbsp.||48 tsp.||8 oz.||240 mL.|
|¾ cup||12 tbsp.||36 tsp.||6 oz.||180 mL.|
|⅔ cup||10 ⅔ tbsp.||32 tsp.||5 oz.||160 mL.|
|½ cup||8 tbsp.||24 tsp.||4 oz.||120 mL.|
|⅓ cup||5 ⅓ tbsp.||16 tsp.||3 oz.||80 mL.|
|¼ cup||4 tbsp.||12 tsp.||2 oz.||60 mL.|
|⅛ cup||2 tbsp.||6 tsp.||1 oz.||30|
Measurement Conversion Questions
Almost all cooking units can be converted into each other. I have listed some of the most used conversions here:
1 tablespoon equals 3 teaspoons.
1/2 tablespoon equals 1 1/2 teaspoons.
1 tablespoon equals 12 1/4 teaspoons.
3 tablespoons equal 9 teaspoons.
1 cup equal 16 tablespoons.
1/4 cup equal 4 tablespoons.
Converting cooking units is very easy, but sometimes memorizing them is a bit difficult for someone like me. Having these conversion table charts makes it very easy for us.
By the way, how do you usually convert units?
