What I made with 10 kg of Flour
Grocery Savings is a big deal in our home and we try to keep our costs low. One way we do that is to bake as much of our own stuff as we can but every time it comes time to buy the flour, I cringe. It is pricey! It is $13.99 at the grocery store for a 10 kg bag when it is not on sale. To me, it is pricey. To help settle my mind a bit (and my husbands), we decided to see just what we could get out of the bag of flour to make it seem ok to spend $13.99 per bag.
Every time I baked I wrote down what it was I baked, so I could see how much food I could get from the 10 kg bag of flour. Below is the list of what I got from a 10 kg bag of flour:
- 120 cookies
- 4 loaves of bread
- 12 very berry muffins
- 24 rolls
- 12 Muffins that taste like Donuts
- 2 batches of Kool Aid Playdough
- 24 mini donuts
- 1 pizza crust
- 1 8” cake
I feel like I got a fair bit of baked goods from the bag of flour and my mind feels better. It is not so bad to spend the $13.99 on the flour if need be, I usually get it on sale for $9.99 but not always.
While I am very pleased when the amount of baked good I got from the bag of flour for the cost, I would buy it regardless. I love to bake as much as possible, I enjoy it and my girls enjoy it as well. If I bake the stuff myself, I know what is going into it I am unsure of the bread that can sit on a shelf for days without going bad, it just doesn’t seem right. If I bake a loaf of bread and it is not eaten within about 3 days it goes moldy…… but the store bought stuff lasts a lot loooonger.
