Hi all,

I think all of us have tried to scale a recipe up or down, but had to spend time trying to figure out the new measurements. This chart will help you with the most common volume measurement units.

Here is a downloadable PDF file you can print on your printer.

Here is what you will get.

I hope you find this useful!

I came across a recipe that called for 1 cube of butter. I've never seen this or heard this before. Shy Smile I am sure that many of you have, but in case some of you are like me, I found this on the Internet.

Measurements For Butter

1 cube = 1/2 cup = 1/4 pound
1 cube = 8 Tbsp.= 24 tsp.
2 cubes. = 1 cup = 1/2 pound
4 cubes = 2 cups= 1 pound

I also found on some blogs, that many people thought that one cube was equal to 1 oz., boy were they wrong. They got this by cutting a stick in half and again in half to get a cube, or one oz.

Yours in Scouting
