So I have an old family recipe because that Mennonite Zwieback that calls because that 3 cubes that butter to 7 cups of flour.

You are watching: How much is one cube of butter

The difficulty is, "cube" seems to it is in a colloquial measurement definition either a literal cube (2 tablespoons), a totality stick (8 tablespoons), or half a rod (4 tablespoons).

With a "West Coast" rod of butter, a literal meaning cube is a fifty percent stick (4 tablespoons) . One "East coast stick the butter is 1/4 stick (2 tablespoons).

I'm leaning towards a cube equaling four tablespoons based an ext on the paper definition of the recipe.

Any various other perspectives the end there?

I guess: v if it's based turn off of West coastline butter carry out that, but if the cooking recipes originated through east cost butter go that route.

This recipe leads me come think the Mennonite variation you room trying for is not much like the teething biscuit/biscotti zweiback that ns think of. Have the right to you post your cooking recipes or at the very least a description of the product you space expecting to make?

Yep. This is the sort that i make.

The teething biscuits in reality come from this kind of zwieback, which means "twice-baked."

Any zwieback the isn't eaten the work is made is sliced slim baked again come toast it, which renders it crisp up.

So a cube ended up being 4 tablespoons.

After reading through many anecdotes around the butteriness that the rolls and comparing the batter to flour ratios of other recipes I gave it a go and also they were amazing.
