Making new recipes can be fun. You can experience new flavors, try different cooking methods, and grow more confident in your abilities in baking and cooking. Many recipes usually yield multiple servings, typically four or more, which can be ideal if you’re cooking for a group or want to have leftovers. Sometimes, though, you may only need one or two servings.
Halving a recipe is a fairly simple process if you have easy measurements, like one cup or two tablespoons. But what happens when your measurements are a little more difficult, like 3/4 cup or one tablespoon? Below is a handy list for halving a recipe:
• 1 cup – 1/2 cup
• 3/4 cup – 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons
• 2/3 cup – 1/3 cup
• 1/2 cup – 1/4 cup
• 1/3 cup – 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons
• 1/4 cup – 2 tablespoons
• 2 tablespoons – 1 tablespoon
• 1 tablespoon – 1 1/2 teaspoons
Now, the next time you find a recipe that you’d love to try but don’t want to make multiple servings of, you can use the above list as a guide for the ingredients’ serving sizes as you prepare the dish.
