Written as is, I only can give this bread 3 stars, with my alterations, absolutely 5 stars! It was alarmingly sweet, and all that sugar is so unnecessary to make a good bread! To start, honey and sugar are a 1:1 ratio in baking, being said I usually use white sugar, but the measurements would be the same for honey. I cut the sugar(honey) down to ONLY 1/4 cup. I added it in at the first step with the yeast and followed the directions as is. After it proofed, I added in the wheat flour with the salt mixed in, (omitting the second 1/3 of honey completely) and replaced melted butter with olive oil. After it was baked I brushed it with the tiniest amount of butter, maybe 1/4ts per loaf, and was more than enough (this step is only for crust texture, we are not buttering the bread for flavor!) This is my new favorite bread, and I will be making over and over again!
