The recipe ingredients listing has been updated so the 1 3/4 cup measurement appears in red. It should be clearer to the cook. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

My bread was a flop. The recipe said 3/4 cup flour. I reread it later and realized it said 1 3/4 cup flour. You need to change your recipe.
