Sorry, I must have missed the 1 before the 3/4 cups of brown sugar in my recipe. It is actually 1 and 3/4 cups (1.75 cups) of brown sugar. Trying to update...

I'm sorry, but this recipe is no good. It was lacking in flavor and definitely needs more sugar - way too tart!

I did had more brown sugar 1cup more

The proportions are off on this recipe. As written it was bitter! I added another cup of brown sugar and now it's edible. Actually quite good.
