You’ve found a great recipe with a delicious new dish that you want to try and you’re super excited. That is until you realize that the recipe calls for cup measurements and you don’t have one. How can you figure out how many teaspoons in 3/4 of a cup?
The quick answer is 36 teaspoons! 3/4 cup is 12 tablespoons. 12 tablespoons = 36 teaspoons.
Want to measure dry ingredients like cups of flour or white sugar? How about wet ingredients like a cup of water or a teaspoon of vanilla?
There are some common conversions that you can use to make sure you’re getting the right ratio for your cooking.
How many teaspoons are in ¾ of a cup?
Figuring out the conversion factor from different measurement systems can be tricky. Because it’s not easy to determine the fractional values that you need without a conversion calculator or food scale.
A lot of people struggle with conversion between the metric and imperial system, which can lead to mistakes when cooking.
I created a handy chart using the United States imperial system for quick conversions. They range from a measuring spoon to a cup value.
What is ¾ cup in tablespoons?
The conversion rate between the U.S. cup and the U.S. tablespoon can be a hard one. This is because one cup is not equal to an exact fraction of tablespoons.
The easiest way of converting these common amounts is comparing ¾ of a liquid measuring cup to tablespoons of liquid ingredients. When looked at it this way, ¾ of a cup is the same exact amount as 12 tablespoons.
Pay close attention because the same applies for dry tablespoons as well.
How many teaspoons in 1 fourth of a cup?
Just like when comparing cups to tablespoons, one cup does not equate to an exact amount of teaspoons, making it more challenging to compare these different measurements.
The easiest way to compare a teaspoon measurement to a cup is by measuring how many teaspoons fit into a one-fourth cup.
This allows us to get the right conversions and makes them much easier to remember if you need to use them in a pinch for precise measurements.
One cup in the imperial system is equal to 48 teaspoons.
To figure out the number of teaspoons in ¼ of a cup and divide 48 by 4. This tells us that there are 12 teaspoons in ¼ of a cup.

How to make ¾ of a cup:
To answer the original question posted, we can now easily figure out how many teaspoons are in ¾ of dry cups, which can be applied to liquid ingredients as well.
The best way is to take the number of teaspoons that we know equal ¼ of a cup, and triple the amount to reach the correct kitchen measurement.
This means that 36 teaspoons are the equivalent of ¾ of an imperial cup.
Knowing these small measurements can be the easiest way of figuring it out without having to consult with a conversion calculator or kitchen scale, especially if you’re someone who cooks a lot.
Is the conversion the same all over the world?
The United States has their own system of volume measurement which has been called the imperial system.
This is based on the metric system, which is the old system that is still used in the United Kingdom and much of the world.
Although they use many of the same terms, such as a metric cup or a U.K. cup, these are different languages of measurement and are referring to different amounts.
In order to get the correct conversion, you would need to look specifically for conversion tables that can handle UK to US conversions (or vice versa).
Most English-speaking countries use the metric system, and the metric system is often known as the international system of units.
This means that an Australian tablespoon will be the same as the English units, since both are the equivalent of a metric tablespoon.

How can I convert to the metric system?
Whether you want to convert those cups of sugar to dry ounces or measure out orange juice in fluid ounces but only have measuring spoons, there is a simple way of figuring out how many teaspoons you need.
As a general rule, 8 fl oz is equal to one cup, which makes it easy to convert to teaspoons.
For example, if I need 6 ounces of water, which is ¾ of a cup, I would use 36 teaspoons.
One liquid ounce in the United States is the equivalent of 6 teaspoons.
If you are measuring using a grams-to-teaspoon conversion chart, 1 teaspoon is the equivalent of 4 grams.
