1/4 cup | 2 tablespoons |

1/3 cup | 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons |

1/2 cup | 1/4 cup |

2/3 cup | 1/3 cup |

Simply so, how can I measure 2/3 cup?

Use a 1/3 of a **cup** and fill it twice if you don't own or can't find your **2/3 measuring cup**. You can also use 10 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons in a pinch as a conversion for **2/3** of a **cup**.

**would**be to have two

**cups**one that is

**2/3 and one**that is exactly

**1 cup**. fill the

**2/3 cup**up with what ever you want to measure.. like water and put it in the empty

**cup**. fill the

**2/3 cup**again and fill the partially filled

**cup**with water again.

Moreover, what does 2/3 cup look like?

Measuring **cups** are used to measure liquids, or powders **like** flour or sugar. As we fill up the measuring **cup**, we need to **look** at which number it is filled to. Here we have **2/3 cup** (two-thirds of a **cup**) of milk. This measuring **cup** holds up to 4 **cups** of liquid.
