How can I accurately measure one pound of sugar?
| Last update: 06 April 2022 If you want to know how many cups are in a pound of granulated sugar, brown sugar, or powdered sugar, you’ve come to the right place.1 pound of granulated sugar is approximately 2 14 cups. When tightly packed, 1 pound of brown sugar (light or dark) contains roughly 2 13 cups. These measurements imply you are spooning sugar into a measuring cup and then using a knife to level it off (without compacting). Using a cup to scoop sugar from a jar or bag may result in inconsistent measurements. Estimates are for a regular US cup. In the tables below, we’ve included a series of conversions from pounds to cups for various forms of sugar.
