Does 1/4 Cup is 4 Tablespoons?
The question of how many tablespoons are in a one-quarter cup makes up the bulk of calls received at most food service hotlines, with an average inquiry ratio of six to one for this simple question.
According to Maria Vannucchi, senior product manager for Volume Services Inc., which provides foodservice training materials to institutions nationwide.
The correct response, 4 tablespoons, may sound wrong compared with what many Americans already know. “Everyone I ask knows it’s 1/4 cup is two tablespoons,” said Vannucchi.
But the tablespoon is a volume measurement, not a cooking weight measure. And other countries, like Canada and England, use the tablespoon as a volume measure.
A quarter-cup is not equal to two tablespoons because it contains four tablespoons. And, if anything, the two tablespoons may turn out to be too much for some recipes where three or even one or two would do just fine.
Volume experts say there is no substitute for using a measuring cup or spoon to get accurate measurements.
“For Better Baking” by Flo Braker (William Morrow & Co.) explains the tablespoon as a volume measure, not a weight measure. According to her book, Americans should use 3 1/2 teaspoons of sugar per tablespoon called for in the recipe. If there are three tablespoons in a quarter cup, this would be 11 teaspoons of sugar.
