Here is my Recipe Cost Calculator that was featured on Money Saving Mom last month:
I recently got a bread maker and my curiosity increased. How much do these items really cost to make? Was it worth my time? What does it cost to make a loaf of bread? So, I created a simple spreadsheet to calculated the cost. I was so pleased with the results!!
Calculating your own recipe is so easy!
- Download the Recipe Calculator Spreadsheet (it’s in Excel format). It may not look as “pretty” as mine if you don’t have my fonts, but the formulas will work just the same.
- You can choose to edit the Ingredient Costs sheet or just leave the prices I have listed.
- Go to the Recipe Calculator sheet and enter the ingredient amounts from your recipe. Your total cost will calculate at the bottom.
I include standard basic baking ingredients on the document. With basic excel knowledge you can add more products to the list and calculate any type of recipe!
Here is a Conversions sheet. I use it as a quick reference when entering amounts on the Ingredient Cost sheet. Also, I taped it on the inside of my spice cabinet and glance at it when cooking.
