    Have not seen a box of powdered sugar in many years but do recall they held one lbs.
    Today podered sugar is mostly sold in two lbs bags.
    IRAY:
    2 cups is not always 16 ozs.
    Example:
    one lbs of flour (16 ozs) is 4 cups (+ or - a tad).
    The 16 ozs being two cups is for liquid measurements like water or milk. All dry things weigh quite a bit different per cup.

    I would say 4 cups. That's what I usually get out of a 16 oz box.

    I always use 4 cups for a pound of powdered sugar. Someone on another board said 3 1/2 cups. I looked up about 8 equivalency sites and half said 4 and half said 3 1/2--one said 3 3/4 cups----so somewhere in that range is right!

    I don't know about powdered sugar but I learned from America's Test Kitchen that a cup of flour weighs 5 ounces.

    jgfan, not all flours are equal.......
    depends on what type of grain and how fine or coarse the grid is.
    They should have said the meaurement of 5 oz p cup of flour was for rye, wh wheat, cake flour, all purpose, Graham or whatever.
    Just an observation made durig over 50 yrs orf baking.

    PS Forgot to mention:
    weight of flour also depends whether you weigh it sifted or un-sifted.
