The truth is that different recipes call for a different amount of sugar to be added. This will basically depend on how much cocoa your recipe calls for. Each recipe has a set amount of cocoa powder and sugar that should be added. The best way to calculate this if you don't have a recipe to follow is:

  • For each tablespoon of cocoa powder, you add to your recipe, you'll need to add  10.8 grams of sugar. 
  • Each tablespoon should measure 5.4 grams. 
This is the closest you can get without letting us know how much cocoa powder you're adding to your recipe.

If you have a specific recipe book to follow them there will be guidelines in the book in terms of quantity and amount of ingredients to use but suppose you don't have any receipe apply this formula; for every one table spoon of cocoa powder you add, add two table spoon of sugar. The ratio of cocoa powder to sugar should be 1:2 respectively. Of cause the amount of cocoa to apply also depends with the quantity of flour you want to bake.
