Different cup sizes
Cup sizes vary between different countries, but how much? For example, is a cup of flour different in the US and the UK? Would that difference affect the baking results?
First, the United States has its own measurement convention called 'US cups,' where ⅔ customary or ⅔ standard cup is equal:
- ⅔ US Cup = 157.73 mL
- ⅔ US Cup = 10.66 US tablespoons (tbsp)
- ⅔ US Cup = 10.51 metric tablespoons (United Kingdom, international)
An American tablespoon equals 0.0625 American cups. Another is a legal US cup used in cooking units, serving sizes, and nutrition labeling in the USA.
- ⅔ US Legal Cup = 160 mL
- ⅔ US Legal Cup = 10.82 US tablespoons (tbsp)
- ⅔ US Legal Cup = 10.66 metric tablespoons (UK, international)
English-speaking countries such as Australia, Canada, and South Africa use the metric system, where
- ⅔ Metric Cup = 166.67 mL.
The old recipes in the United Kingdom use the British imperial system, where an Imperial (UK) cup is a non-metric liquid measurement unit of volume. Modern recipes in the UK use UK metric cup.
- ⅔ Imperial Cup = 189.33 mL
- ⅔ UK Metric Cup = 166.67 mL
|1 cup||Milliliters||⅔ cup||Milliliters|
|US Customary Cup||236.59 ml||US Customary Cup||157.73 ml|
|US Legal Cup||240 ml||US Legal Cup||160 ml|

- 1 UK tablespoon = 15 ml
- 1 Canadian tablespoon = 15 ml or 0.51 US fl oz
- 1 Australian tablespoon = 20 ml or 0.68 US fl oz

⅔ x 16 = 10 ⅔ tbsp

- 1 ⅓ sticks of butter, or
- 10 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons of butter, or

How to measure ⅔ cup
Or how to measure two-thirds of a cup? Should you measure two times by one-third of a cup, or is there another easy way?
There are different ways how to measure ⅔ cup:
- Use a ⅔ measuring cup.
- Use a ⅓ cup and fill it twice.
- Use a ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons.
- Use 10 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons.
- Use 32 teaspoons.
But how to measure a ⅔ cup without a measuring cup or spoon? If you do not have measurement tools:
- Use the size of your fist or a large apple, approximately equal to one cup. Divide that amount into thirds, and discard one-third.
- Look at the weight of the package. Butter and cream cheese often have markings you can use for your convenience.
But first and foremost, you must have a set of measuring cups and spoons if you are used to the US customary system (USCS). You should use a dry measuring cup for dry ingredients such as flour, sugar, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.
Liquid ingredients should be measured with specially-designed liquid measuring cups, which often come in sizes like 4 or 8 cups.
To measure dry products, such as flour, and cocoa powder, follow the scoop and level method. First, make sure to sift a dry ingredient, then fill the ⅔ measuring cup and level the ingredient across the top of the cup using the back of a butter knife.
Please, note that the recipes call for a level cup and level tablespoon or teaspoon (not heaped).
Measuring semi-solid or semi-liquid ingredients, such as honey, molasses, sour cream, etc., is better achieved with a dry measuring cup.
To measure liquid ingredients, use a liquid measuring cup set on a flat surface. Ensure that the wet ingredients are either at room temperature or melted.
Pour the liquid into a liquid measuring cup (don't use a tea or coffee mug or cup instead), and bend over to find the measuring mark at eye level. The bottom of the meniscus is the level of the ⅔ cup marking.
To measure small amounts of dry or liquid ingredients, use a set of measuring spoons. Please don't use a dessert spoon; it is used for eating desserts but not measuring ingredients.
With little practice, you will become a pro at measuring ingredients. But if your recipe is listed in metric measurements, it is time to invest in a kitchen scale.
Digital scales will ensure the most accurate measurements of ingredients. In addition, it will guarantee consistent results in baking.
