This is a link to a discussion on how both constructions can be correct, but would "de quanto açúcar ela precisa" be "normal" here? http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=974831

Yup, since in the answer we'd use "ela precisa DE dois kilos", for example. In my region the most common is not to use "de", but just use "quanto" (note: not every "how much" is translated as "de quanto", but "quanto". So, if you use just "quanto" you'll be less likely to make a mistake) ;)

And is "how many" correct ?
