I agree with Purplepisces. It is more of a dessert. One cup of sugar? That's alot. You can always tweek recipes to your liking. Use whole wheat instead of white, reduce the sugar, replace eggs with eggwhites and use half the oil called for. The list goes on.

I'm leaving this site. It's not 'fitness' it's 'try this its not AS bad.' It shouldn't Be bad at all. Why all purpose flour instead of whole wheat? This bread only has 3g fiber/2g protein and 33 Carbs. It's a bad for you dessert; not a "bread" I can have with eggs in the morning.
