# How many tablespoons are in one-quarter cup?

There are four tablespoons in 1/4 cup. When using measurements for recipes, one should only use commercially prepared measuring tools. One should use nested cups for dry ingredients and clear plastic or glass measuring cups for liquids.

Some ingredients require special precautions when measuring. Flour requires sifting and spooning into the dry measuring cup, leveling with the back of a knife. Accurate brown sugar measurements involve packing the ingredient into the cup so it holds its form as one removes it. When measuring liquid ingredients, the cook places the cup on a level surface and moves his head so the eyes are level with the mark on the cup.
