    8 ounces is about 1 cup.

    There is roughly 2 1/4 cups of white sugar in 1lb.

    Ok, here I go again reading labels.
    My granulated sugar says there are 567 1 tsp servings of sugar in the 5lb bag.
    So, 567 divided by 5 equals 113.4 tsp in 1 lb of sugar.
    113.4 divided by 2 (to get to 8 oz, or 1/2 lb) equals 56.7 tsp in 8 oz of sugar.
    56.7 tsp divided by 3 (to get to tablespoons) equals 18.9 tablespoons in 8 oz of sugar.
    16 tbsp sugar equals 1 cup. That leaves 2.9 tbsp sugar left over. Or about 1/8 cup plus 1 tbsp of sugar. 8 oz of sugar equals 1 1/8 cups plus 1 tbsp of sugar.

    Get a scale.

    I don't think my response is the answer to your question - but it may still help?

    1 cup sugar = 7 oz

    I usually "google" to get an answer for this type of question. So, I googled "8 ounces is how many cups". Wiki was the first up with an answer of 1 cup.

    I giggled seeing your response. We live in this silly world of metric measurement, and being from the old school, I realy dislike it. We have flyers giving us the price of meat in pounds and then get to the store and they will have everything in metric. I will ask my husband how many pounds and he gives me an answer like the one above

    Seeing this post reminded that I noticed CL is starting to give measurements for flour in oz. with the c. measurement in parentheses. Does anyone know why they started doing this?

    Someone said they explain in the October issue.

    There's a whole thread about it too

    Yes, but note that you didn't specify 8 ounces of what in your search. It depends.

    By volume, 8 ounces liquid is 1 cup liquid.

    By weight, 8 ounces weight is 1/2 pound but that may not be one cup.

    The OP was asking how much by volume is 8 ounces of sugar by weight. You need the density of sugar to determine that (or a cook's conversion table).

    Or the serving size information from the label on the bag. See my reply up above.
