It's simple math, 1 cup = 8 oz., 2 cups = 16 oz. I'm referring to brown sugar that isn't packed.

You can't compare 8 ounces liquid measure to 8 ounces of weight. Everything you put in an 8 oz liquid measuring cup will weigh something different. Cooks Illustrated says that one packed cup of brown sugar weighs 7 ounces. So one pound will yeild just over 2 1/4 cups.

Brown sugar is sold by weight, not volume (like honey), so one cup will not be 8 ounces like most things.

Hi Abear

I believe it is sold by weight. I'm not very sure on cup measurements.

Oh by the way...I sure wish you would come back to visit us at family corner. We miss you lots. Don't know if you remember me or not. You are from my hometown.

2 1/2 Cups of brown sugar packed = 1 pound

A 2lb bag lists 226 teaspoon servings per bag. Just convert that into cups and you find that 1 lb of brown sugar is 2.3541667 cups. Just round that to 2 and 1/3 cups and you got it!
