The Cost of Baking Bread

August 23, 2010 - 4:26pm -- thespeidels

I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place, but I am trying to figure out how to calculate my expenses for baking one loaf of bread!  I am selling some bread right now to a few people, and want to make sure I am charging enough!!  Does anybody have some kind of formula they follow that you can share with me to figure out how much it costs me to make my bread??  Thanks~  Chelsea
