    Hello
    I have to give this presentation in French on how to bake a cheesecake, but I'm not really sure wha to do with the measurements (like, 1/2 cup or 1 and 3/4 cups). I have no clue how I would say 1/8th or 1/4th, so if anyone knows how to say that french it would really help me out. For 1 cup or 1/2 cup I think its un verre and un et un verre demi.
    Thanks, Toya

    Just a stab ..

    1/2 cup = une demie tasse

    1 and 3/4 cups = une tasse et trois quart

    1/4 cup = une quart de tasse

    1/8 cup = ?

    1 cup = une tasse

    Wait for corrections from the experts.

    Xanana's way of saying a quarter cup is also right, it's just a matter of personal opinion

    Pourquoi on n'ajoute pas un "e" à la fin ?

    Merci

    It was a typo on my part.

    Attention, toutefois ! :)

    Une demi-tasse
    Un demi-bol
    Trois demi-journées par semaine

    Mais :

    Une tasse et demie
    Un bol et demi

    ;)

    Of course if you're giving this to a French audience, you might want to convert to the metric system.

    1 cup = approximately 250ml.

    And if you were truly a purist, you'd convert the volumes to weights (except for tbs and tsp).
     
  10. Some corrections :

    1/2 cup= une demi-tasse
    1/3 cup= un tiers de tasse
    1/4 cup= un quart de tasse
    1/8 cup= un huitième de tasse
    1 tablespoon= une cuillère à soupe (1 c.s. in cooking books)
    1 teaspoon= une cuillère à café (1 c.c. in cooking books)
    1 1/2 cups= une tasse et demie
