    I made this and it was really good – thanks for the recipe! The family loved it, too.

    There are a couple of errors, though, in the directions of the recipe. Step 1: you forgot to say to add the oil. Step 3: which should be whisk? Step 5: The cinnamon/sugar mixture…either 1/2 of the mixture between two layers, or 1/3 of the mixture ending with the last 1/3 on the top? It wasn’t too clear.
