How to Get Flour in Animal Crossing?

Players can get flour in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by combining five pieces of wheat at a cooking station. This will create ten bags of flour, which can be used as a cooking ingredient. You will require the cooking recipe for flour, but this is obtained very easily using the ‘Be a Chef! DIY Recipes+’ item sold for 3,000 Nook Miles.

How to Get Wheat?

First, you want to get your hands on some wheat. Wheat is a growable crop in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, introduced in the 2.0 free update. You can buy wheat starts from Leif or failing that occasionally they appear on Kapp’n’s Islands. If all else fails, you can just trade for it on a site such as Nookazon.

Wheat crops produce harvestable wheat after three days of growth. Watering it each day during this time period increases the bounty that can be harvested. If you want a more in-depth wheat guide, I have one here that you can check out!

How to Learn to Cook in Animal Crossing?

Unlike other activities in the game, you do not get taught any sort of cooking during the opening tasks. Players can only cook if they purchase the ‘Be a Chef! DIY Recipes+’ item sold for 3,000 Nook Miles from the Nook TerminalThis will give players access to cooking, as well as teach them basic recipes such as flour.

You might have come across a recipe before and have tried learning it to no avail. This is because you need to learn to cook firstbefore learning dish recipes.

You can use many of the expected furniture items to prepare food. This includes ovenskitchenettes, and gas ranges. Just like using a crafting table to craft DIY recipes, to cook you just need to approach a suitable item and then tap the A button. This will bring up the food preparation window, as well as show the recipes you have available.

What Can You Cook with Flour?

Flour can be used to cook some delicious in-game meals, that are sure to fill you with the power to cut trees and shatter rocks. This includes pasta dishes, curry dishes, or even cookies! However, my personal favourite dish that you can create with flour is pizza!

That’s right – you can make pizza in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The easiest one to make is a pizza margherita, which just requires three bits of flour and two tomatoes. So now you can create your very own island pizzeria and serve actual pizzas!
