I have an icebox magnet that gives these equivalents for just such occasions as this. It says 2/3 cups = 5oz = 11TBSP=32TSP=158ml. I have another magnet that doubles, triples and halves standard measures. You can get both at cooking supply stores and the usual suspects. TJ Max, Marshalls and Ross

I don't have an icebox, but I have one of those great little magnets. It hangs on my refrigerator. I got mine from Miles Kimball, that terrific little catalog with all clever, usefull and hard to find things.

1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons

1/3 cup = 5 1/3 tablespoons = 5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon

Therefore, 2/3 cup = 10 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon

There ya go. I've been using this formula for over 40 years with no problem.

Since we've dredged up a 6 year-old thread, wouldn't it be easier to use a 1/3 cup measuring cup twice? Every set of measuring cups I've ever seen includes a 1/3 cup measure.

If not that, 158ml rounded up to the nearest whole number.
