Is 8 tablespoons of butter equal to a stick of butter?

Topics: Food & DrinkDairyRecipes

A standard 1/4 lb. stick of butter is 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup. If in doubt, it usually says so right on the stick. Butter is not sold in 'sticks' anywhere in the world but the USA. Hence the confusion. 'Stick" is not a standard unit of measure, but a convenience for the manufacturer. Butter is more commonly sold in 454g bricks (1 lb), which is equivalent to 2 cups.
