# Help me figure out a measurement please

I am making bread and need 1/2 cup milk.

I have the instant dry milk and only wanted to fix up 1/3 cup milk so the rest won't go to waste.

The box says I can only make it by quart. It's 1 1/3 cup mix per quart. How can I find the measurement for what I need only.

Thanks!

• I think 1/3 cup of the mix would make 1 cup of milk. I am not positive but I think that is correct. So 1/6 cup would make 1/2 cup of milk.

4 cups = 1 quart. You use 4/3 cups of mix to make 4 cups of milk. 1/3 would make 1 cup.

• I would measure the amount of water and then add dry milk by the tablespoon until it looked right...
