This recipe is...meh. The loaf tastes extremely sweet and sugary. The title and description are quite misleading. "Basic" - yet has an optional ingredient: lecithin (completely unnecessary in a loaf of bread). The author claims this loaf has "no sugar," but look at ingredient #2: 2/3rds of a cup of honey - a whopping 225+ grams of sugar, putting this loaf on par with or containing MORE than commercial "whole wheat" loaves which contain 10-16 grams a SLICE. This negates any benefit of using a whole wheat flour. Perhaps she thinks (mistakenly) honey isn't sugar, but it is. So is "agave nectar," "evaporated cane juice," "corn syrup," or any of the dozens of other aliases for sugar.<br/><br/>I don't need/shouldn't need to douse my whole grains in sugar to eat them. Why is a true basic loaf (some combination of flour, yeast, salt, and water) recipe so hard to find?!
