How many cups of flour is in a 5 lb bag?
Four cups of flour equal 1 lb., so there are 20 cups of flour in a 5 lb. bag. Also, two cups of sugar equal 1 lb., so there are 10 cups of sugar in a 5 lb. bag. Improved Answer Four cups of flour does not equal one pound. That response is confusing weight with volume...one cup does not automatically equal eight ounces. The weight depends on the product inside that cup! All purpose flour in general provides 3.63 cups of flour per pound.
