Zane DuMont/Demand Media You may need to add half of 3/4 cup sugar to a recipe if you are halving the quantity or if the recipe calls for far more sugar than you desire. Plastic and metal measuring cups for dry ingredients do not indicate where the half-level line would be, and glass measuring glasses lack a measurement for half of 3/4 cup.
If you wish to add half of 3/4 cup sugar (3/8 cup) to a recipe, you have several options for measuring this quantity. Zane DuMont/Demand Media A tablespoon is used to measure half of 3/4 cup sugar. Twelve tablespoons is three-quarters of a cup, so cut 12 in half and add six tablespoons of sugar to the recipe for one-half of a cup.
Zane DuMont/Demand Media Use a measuring tape or ruler to determine the height of your 3/4-cup measuring cup. If the 3/4 cup is 2 1/4 inches tall, for example, the cup should be filled to a height of 1 1/8 inches. You may also accomplish this with a glass measuring cup by calculating the height to the 3/4-inch mark and dividing by two.
- Zane DuMont/Demand Media Fill the 3/4 cup a little more than halfway with sugar, then invert it over your sugar container and allow some sugar to drip back into it.
- You should construct a diagonal line from the top edge of the cup as it is held sideways to the bottom lip of the cup’s open portion.
- You now have half of a 3/4-cup measure of sugar.
