The answer:

3 loaves of bread * 5 ¼ cups of flour per loaf = 15 ¾ cups of flour are needed for the bread

20 cups of flour on hand - 15 ¾ cups of flour needed for the bread = 4 ¾ cups left over

Since the cake recipe requires only 3 ¾ cups of flour, there is plenty of flour to bake the cake.




Thanks for writing.
