I have a question about the recipe "Gooey Butter Cake" from Mark Bittman. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of yeast - is that correct?

I would definitely wait to make. It has to be a mistake and thinking 2 teaspoons.

St. Louis Sticky Gooey Cake often has a lot of yeast in it, because ~
1. it needs to be strong enough to hold up the sticky gooey
2. most bakers want to make the dough, and the cake, in one day, so a lot of yeast is used to speed up the process.

Also there are all sorts of yeast, so he could have meant 2 Tablespoons fresh yeast...

From recipes I've read most use 1-3/4 teaspoons of yeast. Haven't found any using tablespoons.

See the article under "Features" it is 2 Tablespoons of yeast. I'd be curious to hear how this turns out.
