Measuring butter?

How much is a stick of butter? And how do you fill a measuring cup? I have always used recipes that measure it by weight.

One stick of butter equals: 8 tablespoons, 1/2 cup, 1/4 pound, 4 oz, 115 g

If a recipe calls for butter by weight you can place it on a kitchen scale to see how much you have but the measurements above should give you a better idea so you can just cut a stick where necessary.

You can easily measure by spooning softened butter into a measuring cup.
