Dry measure

Postby Tink » Tue Jul 13, 2004 9:09 pm

i need to use 3/8 of a cup of powdered soup mix to 1L of water. My measuring cup does not have this marked. And I do not have a dry measure cup set. Could some one maybe tell me how many tbsp. are in 3/8 of a cup. Please Help!

One cup is 16 tablespoons, so you will need six tablespoons to make 3/8ths of a cup. Coincidentally, there are eight ounces to the cup, so you could also use three fluid ounces, if your measuring cup has those measurements, and get the same amount.
