    Your recipe mentions baking powder, but it’s not included in the list of ingredients. Help!

      Baking powder is not listed in the ingredient list. I think you misread it.

        Nope, it’s there in the directions (line 3), but not in the ingredients list. Do you mean it shouldn’t be there? Thanks!

        • Holly says:

          Gotcha! I see it now. I think that was mistakenly added in the directions! I’ll make the change now. Thanks for catching that!
