# How many cups of flour are in one pound?

There are four cups of flour in one pound.

3.6 cups

If One Cup of Flour = 4 ounces, then there are 4 Cups to One Pound of Flour.

If One Cup of Flour = 5 ounces, then there are 3 Cups 1 Ounce to One Pound of Flour.

If One Cup of Flour = 6 ounces, then there are 2-2/3 Cups to One Pound of Flour.

Flour Measurement: Dry Measures, Volume or Weight vs. Accuracy

Weighing flour is the most accurate method of proportioning to a given recipe. It is also the best method to successfully repeat the desired product. However, most recipes list volumetric values, such as cups. It does not mean that the recipe is unmakable, only that one must use extra steps to maintain proportions with reasonable uncertainty (better than guessing). There are guidelines for measuring cups of flour and its use lessens the chance for error. A guideline is listed in the next section.

Other factors affecting volumetric measurements are flour texture, such as grain size and compaction. Sifting flour reduces compaction.

Humidity affects both methods of measurement.

OK - this is where it gets a bit messy; using approximate US to SI conversions:

(Reference: One ounce(U.S. liquid) = 29.57 milliliters; One dry quart(U.S.)= 1.1 liters(SI) = 550.61 ml(SI))

One Pound(U.S. dry) = 16 ounces(U.S. dry)= 454 grams(SI)

One Ounce(U.S. dry) = 28.35 grams(SI)

One Cup(U.S.dry) of Flour ～ 4 to 6 ounces(U.S. dry)or 113.4 to 170.1 grams(SI)

Conclusion:

If One Cup of Flour = 4 ounces, then there are 4 Cups to One Pound of Flour.

If One Cup of Flour = 5 ounces, then there are 3 Cups 1 Ounce to One Pound of Flour.

If One Cup of Flour = 6 ounces, then there are 2-2/3 Cups to One Pound of Flour. Study guides
