How would you go about calculating syns for a slice of home made bread?

Would you syn up all the ingredients and then divide by the number of slices or would you base it on a slice that is listed in the SW app/website?

I love making home made bread. Shop bought bread bloats me so I don't often eat it, less so now I'm doing SW. I don't intend to go crazy and devour a whole loaf in one sitting but I would like to know I can make a loaf for the family and indulge in a slice here and there.

Surely it's got to be better/healthier than shop bought?! At least I know what's in it hmm

Just had a quick look at flour and using a basic bread recipe using 500g flour, I'd be looking at 8 ish syns per slice confusedconfused that's based on getting approx 10 slices out of a loaf which I think is optimistic!

That doesn't include the half Inch of butter you have to have with it hmm

Why is flour such high syns??

Make Wholemeal bread and use 60g as a b choice?

We make our own bread. I weigh it and factor up a similar bread's syns

The biggest problem I find is getting it cut thin enough not massacre my syns. So I end up eating crappy hovis instead as it's generally a third of the weight for a slice.

My mum makes wholemeal rolls. She weighs them as dough so they are one healthy extra each.

It makes for easier portion control than a loaf. And, since she only gets exactly what she needs from the freezer, less waste too.

Mortis,
That's a fab idea but isn't that then measuring the raw weight rather than the cooked weight, which means it's nore than HEX B.

Genuine q as I'm new to this. (My first & only SW post from yesterday hasn't been replied to.)
