    I noticed that the directions call for sugar, but thee is no amount of sugar listed in the ingredients list. Anyone know how much sugar to use?

    Hum…I wouldn’t even have noticed had you not said anything. I wonder how much sugar to use too.

    I did a blog post on this…and in the comments on that post someone let me know there was no sugar listed in the ingredients. I didn’t use any sugar at all (wasn’t in the ingredients :)) and it was wonderful. Marianne hasn’t commented to update the recipe either. One of the other commenters said her recipe was almost just like this one and she uses 1/2 cup of sugar.

    I’m so sorry for omitting an ingredient – I hate when that happens to me.

    The recipe uses 1/2 cup sugar. Does anyone know how to update a recipe?
