# cocoa powder

I have an old family recipe from someone that has passed away and the recipe says 1 1/4 ounces of cocoa powder. How many teaspoons and/or tablespoons is that? I would really like to make this chocolate icing for my son's cake. He remembers his grandmother making it many times. Thanks. --Candy--

Candy...I'm guessing you don't have a scale to weigh it out? I am already done in the kitchen tonight....but I will weigh it out tomorrow and get as close a measurement as I can. If no one else answers your request...I'll post it tomorrow night.

I weighed out 1 1/4 ounces today. Then I took a tablespoon and counted them out...there was 7 Tablespoons....it was slightly less than 1/2 cup. Hope this helps!

Hi Candy,

This could very well be incorrect but if I am doing my calculations correctly the answer should be 2 ½ Tbs. That should be right but I can't be 100% sure.

Good Luck.

I don't know if it translates perfectly for powders but for liquids:

2 tablespoons = 1 oz.

3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
