Hmmmm. If I remember my third grade lessons correctly, 2/4 = 8/16 = 1/2. 3 tbs. = 1/8 cup. 3 tsp. = 1 tbs. 18 ounces (volume measurement) = 1 cup. So 24 tsp. = 18 oz. = 1 cup.

Darned you guys. You made me have to think.

Na. I didn't create fire. I'm the guy who learned to use it to cook a rabbit.

You should probably also mention that the pancake recipe was supposed to state 3/4 of a cup instead of your wonky method of stating a half cup.
