Default Had bad luck with priming with DME. How to convert to priming sugar?

I had bad luck with priming with extra light DME before, so I am bit reluctant to do it again.
I am bottling my "ultra-IPA" (100+ IBU). Recipe calls for 300ml (1 1/4 cup) of Xtra light DME in 2 cups of water.
What would be the quantities, if done with priming sugar?

Usually for a 5-gallon batch, it's ~3/4 cup of table sugar in 2 cups of water...
