1 Pound of granulated sugar equals 2.25 cups. Whereas 1 cup of powdered sugar will make approximately 3 1/2 cups.

Four cups per pound, average.   Remember, liquid measures are different from dry.

On average 4 cups - the first answer was as accurate as you can get. As for the other two answers they are way off - 16oz of volume is totally different than 16oz of weight

It's 3 1/2 cups to one pound according to this useful conversion list.

One pound of sifted, or unpacked flour will measure 3 and 7/8 cups by volume.

I have weighed and measured this to be accurate.

As the above poster mentioned, liquid and dry measures are different. (unless your talking about the much more intelligent Metric system, no confusion there.)

One pound carton powdered sugar is equal to 4 cups (unsifted). But if you take one pound brown sugar then it is equal to 2 cups packed 1 cup = 8 ounces

If I found a cup in a bag of sugar I would be surprised. I would rather find sugar in it
