How many cups in a quart—it’s a question that was making smoke come out of my ears! Gallons, Quarts, and Cups—Oh MY! Use this easy memory tool to help you remember these kitchen conversions!

How Many Cups In A Quart?

How many cups in a quart, pint, gallon!
  • 1 gallon = 4 quarts, 8 pints, 16 cups
  • 1 quart = 2 pints, 4 cups
  • 1 pint = 2 cups

Recently, I was trying to make a recipe for apple butter that I had found in an old Amish cookbook.

Have you ever looked at some of the recipes in those Amish cookbooks?

Y’all, the proportions for these recipes are HUGE!

Since I don’t necessarily want to make gargantuan portions, I knew I needed to figure out a way to half the recipe.

I found that I was struggling to remember some of the measurements that I had learned in school!

I didn’t end up making the apple butter, so I can’t share the recipe. It was a bit of an overwhelming task, but, it did allow me to brush up on my measurements a bit.

How many cups in a pint? And how many pints in a quart? I went to Google, as I have to do every single time I need to remember measurement conversions and it occurred to me: there has to be a better way!

I printed a handy graphic a few years ago (pretty sure I originally printed it from this site) that I had tucked it into the back edge of a cookbook and filed it away in my kitchen, sure to be forgotten.

The original graphic was pretty worn out, so I decided to make a fresh one for you to utilize. You should totally print this and keep it on your refrigerator. You’re going to find it so useful, and soon enough, you’ll have the graphic memorized for life!

Here’s a shortlist of the conversions using the graphic above. You’re never going to have to consult Siri to find out how many cups are in a quart ever again!

  • 1 gallon = 4 quarts, 8 pints, 16 cups
  • 1 quart = 2 pints, 4 cups
  • 1 pint = 2 cups

Now, after you’ve committed the measurement conversion tool to memory (it’s not that hard, it’s tarts with the gallon eating the quarts), you can test yourself using the questions below.

How did you do on our little pop quiz?

I’ll be honest, friends, I’ve never won any awards in math. Thank God my husband is proficient and can help our son with his third grade math. LOL!

Numbers just aren’t my thing, and this can be tough for someone who loves to cook and bake.

It’s why I keep this cheat sheet on my refrigerator these days. I even have mine laminated!

Speaking of measuring cups and the kitchen, I am just dying over how sweet these mason jar measuring cups are!
