How Do You Figure That?Posted: February 10, 2011
I just can’t escape it, math. Today I decided to figure out how much flour I need for a three month supply. Assuming you can bake bread, which is a valuable and fun skill to have, here is a guideline you can use to figure it out for your family. Oh good, another story problem!
My wheat bread recipe calls for 9 cups flour (4 1/2 cups wheat and 4 1/2 cups white) and makes 3 loaves per batch. My family of two consumes 2 loaves per week. How much flour do we need for three months?
10 lbs flour = approx. 38 cups
