No, flour weighs much less than granulated sugar. Let us first differentiate between fluid ounces and ounces. Fluid ounces are a volume measurement; regular ounces are considered a weight measurement. Experiments will show that granulated sugar is about eighty percent the weight of water [cup for cup], while flour (not densely packed but flowing into cups is about half the wight of water [cup for cup].

different weights. 1 cup of sugar is going to weigh more than 1 cup
of bread flour. Sugar is 7 oz in one cup and bread flour is 5 oz in
a cup. So to answer your question I would have to know what it is
your measuring.

###### Asked in Cake Flour

### How do you substitute three quarter cup cake flour with all purpose flour?

Sift the all-purpose flour, using a sieve or flour sifter, into
a bowl.
2
Measure 3/4 cup of flour from the all-purpose flour you just
sifted, and pour it in a new bowl. A cup of sifted flour will weigh
less than a cup of unsifted flour because sifting creates more
volume, so if you scoop sifted flour, you are scooping less of it.
Therefore, it is a good idea to sift more all-purpose flour than
you might need.
