I am just into making cakes, so far I have done great, but now I have a recipe that call for 3/4 cup of butter,I'm not sure if that is one stick of butter and a half or how do I measure for 3/4 cup?

Hey There!

The short answer is that 3/4 cup is equal to 1 and 1/2 sticks of butter.

Here's the way it works:

1 pound of butter = 16 ounces = 4 sticks = 2 cups

1/2 pound of butter = 8 ounces = 2 sticks = 1 cup

1/4 pound of butter = 4 ounces = 1 stick = 1/2 cup

1 stick of butter = 1/2 cup = 1/4 cup + 1/4 cup, so, 1/2 stick of butter = 1/4 cup

1 stick of butter + 1/2 stick of butter = 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup = 3/4 cup.

So, that's how it works. Now, the other way you can do it is to just measure the softened butter in a measuring cup.

I hope this has helped. Good luck with your cake!
