How to Make 2/3 Cup with 1/4 Cup
Sometimes in cooking or baking, you may come across a recipe that calls for a specific measurement, like 2/3 cup, but you only have a 1/4 cup measuring cup at hand. Don’t worry; there’s a simple solution to this problem!
Step 1: Measure 1/4 cup
Step 2: Add 1/4 cup + 1/4 cup
Next, take your 1/4 cup measurement and add another 1/4 cup to the same container or bowl. This will give you a total of 2/4 cup or 1/2 cup.
Step 3: Add 1/4 cup + 1/6 cup
Now, you need to add an additional 1/4 cup and an additional 1/6 cup to your mixture. To measure 1/6 cup, you can use a 1/4 cup measuring spoon and fill it about 2/3 full. Adding these two amounts together will give you a total of 2/3 cup, which is what you need!
Step 4: Mix and use in your recipe
Lastly, thoroughly mix the measured ingredient to ensure an even distribution. Now, you have successfully created 2/3 cup using a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Proceed to use it in your recipe as directed. Enjoy your culinary creation!
Remember that having various measuring cups and spoons of different sizes is always beneficial in the kitchen. However, in situations where you only have a limited number, this technique can certainly come in handy to create a specific measurement that you require.
