A 1-pound loaf of bread makes about 10 to 12 cups of cubed bread. However, this depends on how small the bread is cubed and if the bread is packed in to the measuring cup or loosely measured.
Bread has long been an important food around the world. The oldest breads were made without any leavening and were similar to tortillas. The oldest leavened bread to have been discovered is about 5,000 years old. It was found in ancient Egyptian tombs. The Egyptians had invented closed ovens for baking their bread in. Originally, wheat for making bread was ground by hand, but eventually mills were invented that ground the wheat.
