Do you ever find yourself wondering how many tablespoons are in 3/4 cup?

If you’ve ever stared at a recipe in a cookbook or on a site without a converter, you’ve probably wondered how many tablespoons are in 3/4 cup or how many cups are in a quart? You’re not alone! Many people have trouble with conversions when it comes to cooking recipes. We’ve put together a list of quick tips for measuring cups and conversions, and two of the best cooking apps for conversions. With these apps, you’ll be able to scale any recipe up or down depending on how many people you’re cooking for.

Measuring Cups to Tablespoons in a Cup

One cup equals 12 tablespoons. Knowing this we can convert half a cup to six tablespoons and one-quarter of a cup to four tablespoons. This means 3/4 cup equals 12 tablespoons. This conversion factor will work for liquid ingredients and dry ingredients.

Quick Reference Conversions – Half sticks of butter are 4 tablespoons.

Top App for Converting Amounts in Recipes

Converter+ is the app I use to scale my recipes up and down easily without getting the wrong amounts. Here’s a screenshot of the iPad version of converting 3/4 cup to 12 tablespoons to see exactly how it works.

Pros

  • You can enter any number format directly in the built-in calculator.
  • 4.8 rated with over a 1.8 thousand ratings
  • FREE for iPad, iPhone, iPod, and Mac with minimal ads

Cons

  • Only available for iOS users

The built-in calculator is the best part of this app! Whether you start with decimals and enter 0.75 cups or fractions and enter 3/4 cup, the converter will automatically answer 12 tablespoons. This works for every recipe at every scale so you’ll never have to remember how many tablespoons are in one measuring cup again! This app is almost as essential as all of my necessary kitchen tools!

If you need to double your recipe or triple your recipe, you can enter what’s in the recipe “3/4 cup” and multiply it directly in the app. Not only will it convert tablespoons to cups, but it will also automatically convert it to other measurements, so you can quickly find the easiest one to measure.

Step-By-Step Instructions for Scaling Any Recipe

Let’s use our 3/4 cup to tablespoons example. What if we wanted to cook for twice as many people or half as many?

Scaling a Recipe Down

  1. Compare Recipe Servings to Your Party – Let’s say we will only cook for four people, but the recipe we’re using serves 8. That’s half (4/8 = 1/2) as many people as the listed servings in the recipe, so two will be your scale-down factor.
  2. Divide Recipe Amount by Scale Down Factor – This is super easy in Converter+. Just enter in 3/4 cup and then divide it again by 2.
  3. Repeat – Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all ingredients.

Scaling a Recipe Up

  1. Compare Recipe Servings to Your Party – Let’s say we will cook for 12 people, but the recipe we’re using serves 8. That’s half (12/8 = 1.5) times as many people as the listed servings in the recipe, so 1.5 will be your scale-up factor.
  2. Multiply Recipe Amount by Scale Up Factor – This is super easy in Converter+. Just enter in 3/4 cup and then multiply it by 1.5.
  3. Repeat – Repeat steps 1 and 2 for all ingredients.
