“Minimally sweet and frosting is optional. Even though I list all-purpose flour, I usually make this with 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour and 1/4 cup soy flour. I love the flavor of orange blossom honey and try to use that if I can get it. Many people may want to increase the amount of sweetener. The reduced amount called for in the recipe makes it more like a bread than a cake, so feel free to increase the honey or sweetener.”
