How Many Tablespoons Are in a Quarter Cup?

A quarter cup contains 4 tablespoons, and since there are 3 teaspoons in each tablespoon, there are 12 teaspoons in a quarter cup. 2 fluid ounces are also a quarter cup.

In the United States, most measurements can be divided into cups, tablespoons, and teaspoons. It is simpler to convert measured liquids when you know how many tablespoons and teaspoons are contained in a given measurement.

Cooks who only have a teaspoon measuring spoon and no quarter cup measuring cup may find it useful to know how many teaspoons are in a quarter cup.

In the kitchen, many measurements are employed for various purposes. A full chicken, for instance, wouldn’t be measured in teaspoons. Instead of measuring it in volume, which is equivalent to how many pounds the chicken weighs, it would be measured in weight.

Similarly, rather of being measured in fractions of pounds, a little quantity of herbs would be counted by the number of teaspoons that are present in the herbs. People who are new to cooking should become familiar with the various measurements that are frequently used in the kitchen.
