Hi Briley1837 4246054, Yes it's teaspoons. The recipe is correct. That was an error in the comment. Sorry for the confusion. -Editors of RecipeLion

The recipe now reads 2 "teaspoons" sugar, not 2 Tablespoons. Is it teaspoons?

Hi judyk, Thanks for bringing that to our attention. It is tablespoons and has been fixed. -Editors of RecipeLion

Under ingredients it says 2 sugar. Is this 2T,2t or what?
