      Hello and thanks for stopping by. I am not sure how to answer that because this recipe was only made with the cake setting on my IP. Sorry I couldn’t help. Thank you! Michele

    In the video, it shows 1/4 cup sugar added. In the written recipe, no sugar is listed. I made cake as written (no sugar). It came out extremely dry and tasteless. Please correct written version to include the sugar.
