    Re: 1 cube butter?

    Good idea Christine. Here in Canada, butter comes by the pound, so if you tell me I need a stick of butter, I'd look at you funny.

            [QUOTE=Robert Fogt;3898]A cube of butter is 1 ounce, which is 2 tablespoons.

            its called a cube because when cut a 1/2 stick in half, you're left with perfect cubes



            lol ive always thought a cube was a stick. and been using a whole stick of butter in my recipes over the years when it called for a cube. sheeeesssh who knew?

                My wife was looking at an older recipe and asked me what amount constituted a "cube" of butter. I decided to check the Internet where I knew I would find the answer. To my surprise I found a lot of answers. A cube of butter is 1/4 stick, 2 tablespoons, 1/2 stick, 4 tablespoons, 1/2 cup, a full stick, 1/4 pound, etc., etc.

                I then decided to look at a "stick" of butter, you know, those four wrapped things that come in a 1-pound box of butter. I took out a stick and realized that if I cut it in half I would get two geometrically perfect "cubes" of butter. I told my wife that a "cube" of butter was 1/2 stick, or 4 tablespoons, or 1/8 pound of butter. She was happy when the recipe worked perfectly.

                Bake on ladies!

                    A stick of butter is 1/4 lb. I assume 1/4 lb of shortening, too.

                        you are wrong---a cube is exactly what is says.. a CUBE... a cube is 1/4 stick of butter
                        same size on all sides----A CUBE

                          I just checked with the originator of the recipe I'm making that calls for a cube of butter and it is a stick or 8 tablespoons..not an actual cube shape of butter.

                            My daughter watched a video on You Tube for no-bake cookies. The host pointed to her "cube" of butter but it looked very nearly like a half stick. All the previous responses have me confused! My daughter used the half stick (4 tablespoons) and the cookies were fine.

                              A cube is a cube and not a stick.
