    Is the spice list correct? It shows 1/4 oz. after cinnamon. Is this recipe missing a spice? Thanks.

  • Hi Dawn,
    We checked with Chef John Rogers and his response is below. Thanks for double-checking!

    The recipe is correct. It says 2 cups of beaten eggs though not 2 eggs.

    Just checking about the ingredient amounts. These #s seem very big…almost 6 cups of sugar?, except for the eggs…only 2? Could you verify?
