    They must have corrected the error - w t. In the cake and 2 t. In the sauce is what I see. Trying this today.

    The ingredient list calls for 4 teaspoons of vanilla but the directions only indicate use of 3 teaspoons (2 in the sauce, 1 in the cake). Which is correct - the ingredient list or the directions?
