1 kg sugar

Explanation:
Although the answer "1 kilo of sugar" is perfectly correct, I have seen the "of" omitted in recipes, so we would have, for example, "300 g cheese" instead of "300 g of cheese". It all depends on context, if it is in a recipe then omit the "of", if in a general context then keep the "of".
