Before even making this I could tell that there are big errors in the recipe. For 3-4 cups of flour, you will only need about 1-1/3 cups of water. (Good rule of thumb: 3 cups flour : 1 cup liquid) And 1 cup of sugar sounds like an awful lot of sugar for only 3-4 cups of flour. 4-5 tablespoons of sugar is plenty. Also, 1 tablespoon of yeast will be more than enough.
