How many cups of flour in a pound of wheat? Figuring this out is not as easy as one would hope!
You would not believe the amount of wheat measuring-flour calculating drama I’ve had here during the past few days. And here I thought that I was decent at math. In addition, I was under the impression that my brain still had at least a little bit of function-ability left. But wowza, figuring out how many cups of flour in a pound of wheat just about threw me over the edge. And unfortunately for you – you had to read my posts and deal with me giving you all kinds of weird information all week.
I think I have now figured this thing out. And I’m posting it here because, for the life of me, I could not find any answers when I did any internet searches. And believe you me, I did some big time internet searches. To the best of my knowledge, the following information is accurate, or at least it is as close as I could figure with what was left of my brain reserves after this week. I used Montana Gold, Chemical Free, Hard White Wheat in my calculations. Typically I order my wheat through Azure Standard. They offer great quality wheat at a reasonable price!
How many cups of flour in one pound of wheat?
1 pound of wheat = 2 cups of wheat
2 cups of wheat = 3 cups of flour
1 pound of wheat = 3 cups of flour
For me, since I currently pay about $1.00/pound of wheat, this breaks down to:
3 cups of flour = $1.00
1 cup of flour = $0.33
And now, I shall go take a long, long nap, because even though it shouldn’t have been nearly that complicated for me to figure out this information, it sent my brain into a crazy tailspin. My apologies to every one of you who got pulled into my confusion this week. I’m planning to continue sharing more of my Real Food – Low Cost calculations next week – after my nap.
