The amount of flour needed to make one loaf of bread varies depending on how big you want the bread to be, for how many servings and for how long you want it to last.
Although, as we all know, fresh and homemade bread usually turns out very tasty and it is quite difficult to refrain from eating it all at once or at most twice, while it is still warm.
However, to answer the question of how much flour is needed for 1 loaf of bread is quite difficult, but let's say that usually the amount of flour needed for making a bread loaf is in the range of 1.1-1.3 lb (500-600 g).
We need to notice how much it takes to absorb the liquid we have prepared in advance, which is made with the yeast (can be powdered or fresh yeast), which is usually covered with about 1 1/5 cups (300 ml) of warm water, in which it needs to be dissolved.
The flour is added to it and the next step is to form a dough, which should not be sticky.
We should not forget that after preparing the dough according to the steps listed so far, it is best to leave it to rise in a warm place for a long time (about 1 hour or 2 hours). But, yes - for a quality and tasty homemade bread, you usually need about 1.1 lb (500 g) of flour.
