My flour bag tells me there are 110 calories in 1/4 cup of flour. A small artisan loaf takes 2 1/4 cups and gives me roughly 10 slices. That should translate to 110 calories/slice, average (commercial bread is 85-100 per slice).
So is that a good reckoning? Or does the yeast eat some of that and reduce the number of calories in the dough? Does the baking alter it?
Anyone have any ideas on calorie counts for homemade bread?
This is basic flour-water-yeast-salt bread: no sugar or oil.
