How much is 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda?

How do I measure 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda, baking powder, or other ingredient?

Easy peasy!

3/4 teaspoon = 1/2 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon

This means that a half teaspoon plus a one-quarter teaspoon will equal a three-quarter teaspoon.

It doesn’t matter if it’s baking soda, baking powder, or any other powder. It’s the same conversion.

However, it seems like when I need a measurement of something that I don’t usually use, then I can never find my specialty measuring spoons.

Luckily, if your recipe calls for measuring spoons that you just can’t find, you can usually get by without it as long has you have the right quantity of ingredients, some kind of measuring spoon or spoons, and can properly do the conversion.

What is a 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda?

A 3/4 of teaspoon of baking soda is 75% of a teaspoon of baking soda. So if your original recipe calls for a 3/4 of a teaspoon and all you have is a regular teaspoon, then you can eyeball it by filling it 75% of the way up.

If you happen to have a 1/4 teaspoon with you, then you would use that 3 times in order to reach 3/4.

1/4+ 1/4 + 1/4= 3/4

or

.25 + .25 + .25 = .75

Another, although I think a more complicated option, is to weigh out what 3/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda would be like.

Keep in mind, since this is specific to baking soda, it wouldn’t be valid for anything else.

3/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda weighs approximately 3.7 grams.

FAQs

What can I use if I don’t have a 3/4 teaspoon?

It’s super easy to lose a smaller measuring spoon. However, it’s also easy to get to a three-quarter teaspoon.

You can just add up a half teaspoon and a one-quarter teaspoon. Because a half teaspoon plus a one-quarter teaspoon is equal to a 3/4 one.

What if I don’t have a half teaspoon?

If you have a quarter of a teaspoon then you would do that 3 times to equal a three quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda or other ingredient.

How do I measure a teaspoon without measuring spoons?

Without teaspoons or a measuring spoon of any kind then it’ll be difficult to measure what you need.

When cooking this might not be a problem because cooking is more of an art than a science.

However, if you’re looking to bake something then this might be an issue. Baking is definitely more science than art.

Your baking recipe might require an exact measure of butter, salt, a certain quantity of sugar, a certain volume of liquid. It will ask you to measure in ounces, cups, teaspoons, or tablespoons.

However, if you don’t have teaspoons then you can either weigh out your ingredient (if you have a scale) or you can eyeball it.

About six pinches of baking soda will equal a 3/4 of a teaspoon.

Is TSP bigger than Tbsp?

This is a mistake that I’ve often made!

TSP means teaspoon and Tbsp means tablespoon.

So no, a teaspoon is NOT bigger than a tablespoon.

How many grams is 3/4 tsp baking soda?

One tsp of baking soda weighs around 4 grams. So 3/4 of a teaspoon will weigh around 3.7 grams or so.

Final words

If you ever cook anything at all, then you’ve come across a recipe that requires ingredients to be accurately measured, right?

It might be by ounces, grams, teaspoons, tablespoon, or cup. This is especially true in baking. It’s a good idea to buy a set of measuring spoons that you can use that will include teaspoons and at least half teaspoons or quarter teaspoons in the set. Many baking recipes call for those amounts so it’s good to have them on hand.

However, if you don’t have the exact teaspoons for your recipes, then with a little math you can do a conversion to make sure that you don’t fill and scoop in too much or too little baking powder or baking soda into your cakes!
