Enter the amount of flour, sugar, and butter used in your baking recipe to determine the total calories. This calculator helps you estimate the caloric content of your baked goods.

## Baking Calories Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the total calories in a baking recipe:

Calories = (Flour * Calories_per_gram_of_flour) + (Sugar * Calories_per_gram_of_sugar) + (Butter * Calories_per_gram_of_butter)

Variables:

- Flour (grams)
- Sugar (grams)
- Butter (grams)
- Calories_per_gram_of_flour = 3.64 (average)
- Calories_per_gram_of_sugar = 3.87 (average)
- Calories_per_gram_of_butter = 7.17 (average)

To calculate the total calories, multiply the amount of each ingredient in grams by its respective average calories per gram, then sum the results.

## How to Calculate Baking Calories?

The following steps outline how to calculate the total calories in a baking recipe:

- First, determine the amount of flour used in the recipe (in grams).
- Next, determine the amount of sugar used in the recipe (in grams).
- Then, determine the amount of butter used in the recipe (in grams).
- Use the formula above to calculate the total calories.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Flour = 150 grams

Sugar = 100 grams

Butter = 50 grams

Using the average calories per gram for each ingredient, calculate the total calories for the recipe.
