    dry goods measurement conversion ?

    i've got a recipe that calls for 14 rounded tablespoons. mathmatically 14 flat tablespoons equals 0.875 cups. is it reasoniable to assume that 14 rounded tablespoons equals roughly 1 cup?

    dry goods measurement conversion ?

    hi jallen,
    what i do in a case like that is to take the tablespoons and count them out into a measuring cup, then beside the ablespoons in the recipe i put the cup quanity beside it, that way i don't have to try and convert everytime i want to make that recipe. works every time. if turns out to be a scant( almost a cup) then i put 1 cup in.
    but labradors suggestion about the conversion chart is spot on, i would check that out and keep it in favorites for later use,it will come in handy.
    happy measuring

    remember,STRESSED spelt backwards is "DESSERTS"
    happy cooking
    Ron
