Printable Guide to Split Any Recipe in Half


Split a recipe in half. No-brainer! It sounds super simple, right? Well, it might be easy and straight forward, but simple guides that speed up our time in the kitchen is what we are all about lately! We all love doing Sunday Food Prep, but anything that gives us even 5 minutes more in our day is totally worth printing out a little cheat sheet!

Use this handy and simple little guide to cut your favorite recipes in half in no time!

You can print this guide out! Just save it as a picture to your desktop and print! Try taping it to the inside door of your spice cabinet or laminating so that it will last longer.



  1. This is SO helpful, especially for some of the awkward measurements to halve (e.g., 3/4 cup)!

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. I've seen this on Pinterest and it's got an error. 1/2 of 1/4 cup is 2 Tbsp, not 2 tsp. Big difference!

  4. 1/4 cup halved is 2 tbsp, not 2 tsp. that could mess up a recipe in a real hurry, lol.

  5. Saw the error too going around Pinterest.. would ruin just any any recipe.

  6. Watch for errors on this chart….there are several.

  7. There are 16 Tablespoons in a cup. Therefore, 12 Tablespoons per 3/4 cup.

  8. Your chart is wonderful, except for one thing that ends up affecting quite a bit. You have apparently gone on the premise that 2 Tbsp = 1/4 cup. Not so. 4 Tbsp = 1/4 cup. 2 Tbsp = 1 fl. oz. Hope this helps.

  9. 1 TBSP halved is 1.5 TBSP but the chart says 1.5 TSP.

    1. Seriously?! Think about it......How can 1.5 Tbsp. be HALF of the initial 1 Tbsp? I believe the chart is correct with the 1.5 tsp. being half of a Tbsp. as there are 3 tsp. in a Tbsp..

  10. As an avid baker that knows the difference between tsp & tbsp, the chart is correct. I frequently half recipes but previously had to rely on my own knowledge and math. There was only one error on the version/image I found on Pinterest, but they have fixed it. If you don't agree with their conversions simply test it and determine the accuracy based on your findings.

    Yes there are 12 tablespoons (tbsp) in 3/4 cup...half of that is 6 tbsp.

    2 tbsp equals 1/8 cup which is half of 1/4 cup. But since not everyone has a 1/8 cup dry measuring cup or 1/8 line on their liquid measuring cup, 2 tbsp is an easier compromise.

    Learn your equivalents folks!!

  11. Accurate baking requires using percentages to get a good reduction or increase in a recipe.
