How many cups of powdered sugar are in two pounds?
Two pounds of powdered sugar is about five cups.
C & H pure cane confectioner's sugar states there are approx. 7 1/2 cups (unsifted) in their 2 lb. package. I needed 5 cups of unsifted powdered sugar for my recipe and it weighed
1 lb. 7.5 oz.
2 lbs= 7.5 cups
the bag I buy is 4lbs , so it is half the bag
It really depends on what kind of sugar that you're measuring sugar, brown, packed is 8oz in a cup sugar granulated 71/2 ozs. in a cup sugar powdered is 43/4 oz in a cup. these measurements are weight measurements. brown is 20 cups, granulated is 93/4 cups powdered 5.93/4 cups in ten pounds of sugar.
Number of Cups There are about 3 1/2 to 4 cups of powdered sugar in a pound. But this depends on the sugar's humidity, moisture, and density. Sifting adds air and increases volume, therefore sifted powdered sugar would be less dense than unsifted. 3 1/2 cups unsifted powdered sugar = 1 pound 4 cups sifted powdered sugar = 1 pound 2 cups
