    1. Hi! I include the measurements in both ounces and cups so that everyone can use whichever they are more comfortable with. But the way it is displayed now does look confusing so I will update for clarity now. Thank you for pointing the issue out to me. I changed some things with the way that I display recipes on my site recently and this recipe must have gone a little wonky during the conversion.
