I am guilty of it and I know there’s lots of bread machine recipes that are also guilty of doing this — it’s not including the loaf size. 

For those who don’t know, here’s the deal:

  • 1 lb machine = 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 lb machine = 3 cups flour
  • 2 lb machine = 4 cups flour

Don’t overload your bread machine!  It could get ugly!
